Chess Camp - VOLUME 5

Two-Move Checkmates

Product Code: B0077EU

Book Description

Chess Camp is a new training system for beginning chessplayers, and for the parents and coaches who teach them. Starting with simple problems to illustrate key concepts, and then progressing to more complex positions, the student will learn by doing, methodically integrating new information with previous knowledge while building effective thinking habits at the board.

In Two-Move Checkmates, the fifth volume in the Chess Camp series, the student will be introduced to the elements of planning, aiming at a goal beyond the current move; start to understand the need to consider the opponent's possible defenses; practice visualizing the board more than one move ahead; and discover the seemingly paradoxical idea of winning by sacrificing material.
