Adie Todd’s chess course is back by popular demand!
We’re launching a new Spring Session of our Adult Introductory Chess Course, taught by Adie Todd. The course is now offered in two levels:
The Beginner course starts at the very beginning of the game, covering such topics as how the pieces move, how to check and checkmate, the relative value of the pieces, an introduction to strategy and tactics, and basic endgames.
The Intermediate course is designed for those who have either graduated from the Beginner course or who already have a basic knowledge of the game. The Intermediate class will cover such topics as tactical themes (skewers, double checks, discovered attacks, zugzwang), opening, middlegame, and endgame strategy, pawn structures, and famous games. We will also play in-class games and analyze them together.
The course runs on Thursday nights for seven weeks, at a cost of $85. The first class is scheduled for next Thursday, April 19.
The Annex Chess Club’s instructional chess programme is designed for all ages (from teenagers right through to seniors) and all levels of chess ability – from general courses, starting at beginner level, right through to special advanced courses, for tournament players up to master level.
