ABOUT THIS COURSE
A six-week online course for experienced beginners and intermediate players from 700-1400 Elo. Open to adults aged sixteen and over. On enrolling in the course you will be issued with your own personalised login to the Chess Bud Coaching Portal. 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.
An experienced beginner knows how all the pieces move, understands key concepts such as checkmate, stalemate, en passant etc. and is ready to start or has already started learning opening strategies and developing their tactical flair. An intermediate player has reached an online rating up to 1400 Elo and has been trying out different openings and styles of play in a bid to master the game.
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!

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.
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.
