ABOUT THIS COURSE
A six-week online course for experienced beginners who are  new to Chess Bud. An experienced beginner knows how all the pieces move, understands key concepts such as checkmate, stalemate, en passant etc. The Online class is conducted using Zoom. There is a maximum of twenty students per class. Each session is part of a specific curriculum designed by Mark to help you develop your all-round game by deepening your knowledge of Classical Openings (1.e4 e5) and the key tactical and strategic motifs that those openings give rise to. Some of the Opening Variations and middlegame positions which will be explored during this term arise from the increasingly popular Scotch Game central attack with 4. d4. We will also be looking at how to play for a win in equal Petroff Defence middlegames and taking a look at the ever resilient Philidor Defence, which is still very much alive and kicking since the time of the French Revolution. Students will have the change to play out and analyse many equal middlegames in themed tournaments to begin learning how to navigate these super-solid under-rated black defences. There will be close analysis of student and master games in class. On enrolling in the course you will be issued with your own personalised login to the Coaching Portal on this site. Your log-in will remain active for as long as you are a Chess Bud student and for one month following the conclusion of the course.

Testimonial

Brian, Managing Director, Experienced Beginners Class

I really enjoyed getting back into playing chess after such a long time. I have found myself either sitting at home playing chess on the phone or on the computer during lunch time. I was delighted with Mark’s notes and found them very helpful and replayed the different gambits with myself.

Testimonial

Patrizia, Tourism Professional, Experienced Beginners Class

I have attended two of Mark’s group courses and have just signed up for a third. I find Mark’s classes very useful for developing my chess skills. His classes cover a lot and at the same time are very enjoyable, an hour and a half flies by! Highly recommended.
