8 weeks -1400+ – Instructor FIDE Master Sunil Weeramantry will help students increase their ability to predict and accurately calculate longer move sequences improving their chance for success.
NSCF Level 5 – Improving Calculation
You cannot make good decisions unless you can calculate accurately.
In this course, students will learn to improve their ability to see clearly several moves ahead without moving the pieces. Clear visualization leads to more accurate calculation of both forcing sequences and non-forcing sequences.
It is expected that students completing this class will increase their ability to predict and accurately calculate longer move sequences. Upon completion of this course, students’ chess knowledge should correspond to a US Chess over-the-board rating of 1600+.
Students who have not completed Level 4 are required to pass a placement test or have instructor permission prior to starting this series of classes.
8 weeks from April 23 through June 18, 2021. (No Class May 28 – Memorial Day weekend.)
