Sample Chess Lessons
The chess lessons gradually increase in complexity, providing a solid foundation and a complete chess training for master level. As a glimpse into the course content, check three samples from the beginning of the program:
- Think Like a Strong Player - introduction
- Chess Strategy - first chess lesson
- Chess Tactics - first chess lesson
Our lessons are presented in PDF format, allowing you to use a chess board for effective and pleasant chess study. We endorse the recommendation of the World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov, who advises:
"Solve using a board. Solve [problems] at the chess board - a real one - not at the computer screen. If you want to make real improvement, real progress, try to stick with chess pieces. [...] Make sure that you solve everything at the chess board." (Garry Kasparov)
