ABOUT THIS COURSE
The main focus of the intermediate course this term will be aggressive King’s Pawn openings ( 1.e4 e5 ) involving an early d4 by white and dangerous attacking lines for white against the Open Sicilian.
Lessons include the analysis of student games from over-the-board tournaments or leagues.
During each lesson students will also use the Coaching Portal to take part in practical training exercises playing against Mark or against each-other in which they play out and then analyse middlegames and endgames arising from the opening systems covered in class. This will help students to develop their ability to choose the right plans in difficult positions and also to fine-tune their winning technique.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the course for anyone looking to improve their game, whatever their current level.

Mark has a relaxed but very informative style of tuition and I have no hesitation in saying I have found the classes to be an absolute bargain in terms of value-for-money.
