Annex Chess Club in downtown Toronto has evening Live Online chess classes for adults and children – for absolute beginners or for those who want to take their game to the next level.

Register online for fall classes. Monday night Kids classes are available at beginner, intermediate, or advanced levels, starting November 9.

Adult beginners can try a 2-week adult beginner class with Keith, starting December 14. This will give you some techniques and principles for making good moves in the opening, middlegame and endgame.

Or if chess is completely new to you, Keith can bring you up to speed with an intro to chess on December 7. This takes you, in one lesson, right from the start with how the pieces move and how to set up the board, through all the rules of the game, how to check and checkmate, and even a few ideas for getting your game off to a good start.

If you’re familiar with basic opening, middlegame, and endgame principles, but you’re looking to go a bit deeper, try a 5-week intermediate class with Peter. There’s one starting November 23, and there’ll be a continuation with new topics starting in January.

Or for tournament players looking to improve, FM Michael Humphreys is teaching a high-level Thursday night adult advanced course, starting November 12. This time around, the focus is on understanding pawn structures:

  • Nov 12 – Isolated Queen Pawn Positions Part 1
  • Nov 19 – Isolated Queen Pawn Positions Part 2
  • Nov 26 – The Carlsbad Structure
  • Dec 3 – King’s Indian and Ruy Lopez Structures Part 1
  • Dec 10 – King’s Indian and Ruy Lopez Structures Part 2
  • Dec 17 – The Boleslavsky Structure

There is a class for everyone!
