DSM Chess Bughouse Class

7:00 - 8:30pm
Led by Jim Freerksen

Bughouse (Team Chess) is quite possibly the most popular chess variant in the world. You'll see it being played -- especially by children during side events at any major tournament. Bughouse is a game played by two teams of two players each. Bughouse is traditionally played with blitz time controls, with each player having five minutes or less to make their moves. The rules of bughouse are quite simple, but the strategies and tactics are perhaps even more complex than in standard chess. The rules make bughouse a fast and furious game filled with exciting combinations and amazing mates. A player can quickly turn a game around, or checkmate a seemingly "safe" king. While you'll never get to place a piece on the board in the middle of a real chess game, the patterns and tactics that arise in bughouse can help develop your chess vision and creativity.

Cost is $250 for the first player and $225 for each additional player from the same family.
