What's Included

The Experienced Chess Club is geared toward students who have two or more years of chess experience. Recording and playing on the clock are encouraged but are not mandatory. We will delve deeper into opening and middle game ideas and traps, and all basic endgames will be mastered, including 2-Rook (step ladder) checkmate, Queen/King and Rook/King (boxing) checkmates, and king/pawn endgames. Concepts such as zugzwang, opposition, backwards and isolated pawns, and holes will be introduced. Students in this group may or may not have some tournament experience. (Please note: There is no ASEP 5-day or Faculty/Staff discount for this club.)
