Adult Experienced Beginner Group Courses

ENROL NOW! for next term commencing 4th January 2021

Every Monday evening for 10 weeks starting
4th January 2021 from 7 – 8.30pm

  • The Monday course is a ten week online course for experienced beginners or students who have already completed my COMPLETE BEGINNERS 10 week course.
  • The group meets once a week for 90 minutes.
  • The Online class is conducted using Zoom.
  • Each session includes a lesson on a specific theme contained in a contemporary or classic game and tactical puzzles that illustrate that theme. We will also be looking at the essential endgames you need to know when starting out in chess.
  • Every Sunday evening I will host a dedicated beginners online tournament for participants from all of my beginners courses. The Chess Bud weekly Beginners Tournament is free to enter and takes place on chess.com every Sunday evening between 7.30 and 9pm
  • Games from the weekly tournament are often incorporated into the weekly lessons.
  • After each class, I will post a video of the key points from that week’s lesson so students can go over the lesson between classes. These recordings will be available in the Chess Bud Online library which is only accessible to Chess Bud students.
  • Students will have access to the Chess Bud Library for five weeks following the conclusion of the course.
  • My hope is that at the end of the EXPERIENCED BEGINNERS ten week course you will have a good understanding not just of the fundamentals of chess, but you will be armed with comprehensive classical opening repertoire based on exciting King’s Pawn openings ( 1.e4 e5) and super-solid and flexible Queen’s Gambit. By now you should have the confidence and knowledge required to continue investigating the game further by yourself.
