Please note: all conversations will be one Zoom account at a time, so you may be in our waiting room for a bit as we bring in people one by one. Please be patient with us! Think of it as waiting for the librarian to be free at a desk.

BEGINNER CHESS CLUB - ONLINE
Learn how to play chess and understand most fundamental chess principles with Nolan DeMott! You’ll learn how to set up the board properly, the rules of the game (i.e. how different pieces move), basic rule nuances such as castling, and the difference between checkmate and stalemate. By the end of this 9 week session, you should understand most fundamental chess principles such as proper piece development (i.e. minor pieces before major pieces), piece values, controlling the center, undefended pieces, trading when ahead and basic tactical ideas (i.e. pins, skewers, forks).
