How to Beat your Grandchildren at Chess

When: Mondays, Nov. 18, 25 and Dec. 2 – 10:00 to noon (3 sessions)

Where: Wynyard Showground Hall

Presenter: Ian Rout

The rules (or Laws) of chess are relatively easy to learn but the “rules” of distinguishing good, indifferent or bad moves are more subtle. Children often handicap themselves by, for instance, not taking account of an opponent’s options, committing to a move without an underlying plan, or being overly optimistic of things going right. We will start from the Laws and work through to how we choose the good moves and exploit an advantageous position once achieved. Note: course is also suitable for people who want to learn chess for other reasons.
