The Classes are conducted using Zoom or Google Meet


– Students will have the chance to play each other either in training games, weekly tournaments or fortnightly  themed opening tournaments.  Mark also runs regular training simuls in class.

– Students will be assigned graduated puzzles each week so as to fine-tune their attacking and defensive ideas for both white and black.  Students are encouraged to study the solutions to these tactical and strategic quizzes in the portal in-between classes so as to develop incrementally their intuition for complex middlegames.

– For the duration of the course, students will have access to the Chess Bud Curriculum in the form of playable opening, middlegame & endgame databases in the Coaching Portal.  Learn essential move-orders to get you out of the opening and into the middlegame!
