Description

Learning chess, like learning to play an instrument, is a complex endeavor that rewards diligence. The more time you invest in it, and the more angles you approach it from, the more you will improve! Led by professional instructors from the Chess Club of Fairfield County, players learn the basic rules, movements and goals of the game. Students also study opening strategy, middlegame concepts, classic games by chess legends, and common endgame techniques. The first half of the class will be instruction, where the students will watch a demonstration via Zoom and actively participate by asking and answering questions. Afterwards, students will engage in guided games against their peers using chess.com, the largest and most interactive chess server to date. Participants will need both a Zoom account and a free chess.com account for the class.
