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 Checkmates with Many Pieces, the third volume in the series, the student will: 1) find his or her way to mate in more complex positions; 2) start to learn the chess openings and their respective typical checkmating scenarios; 3) begin to apply basic tactical tools such as the pin, discovered check, and double check; and 4) see the great difference that small changes can make in a position.
