Under 800 Rating Course

8 Tuesdays  7:00pm - 8:00pm (optional free play from 8:00pm - 9:00pm)

Led By Jim Freerksen

This class is for players with a US Chess rating under 800 and/or some US Chess experience. Lessons will be targeted to the needs of the players who register, but will be designed to help improve tournament play and gain advanced skills to increase the player's US Chess rating. Common things that players under 800 need improvement on are recognizing basic tactics, converting advantages into wins, avoiding stalemate, expanding on basic opening knowledge, and avoiding traps.

The class is limited to 10 players.

Cost: $150 for the first player, $125 for additional players in the same family.
