In this live and interactive course, students who are thorough with the beginner level will move into greater depths of the game. You will learn various tactics and strategies, learn how to calculate variations and improve their game. There will be some topics common to both beginner and intermediate level, but the latter will be more challenging.
Intermediate players should be taking the steps to develop a consistent approach and see that "planning" in chess begins from the first move. An intermediate player should be able to recognize most "main line" chess openings, even if he/she hasn't yet mastered them.
After grasping the opening concept, you will learn about tranposing into one another. You will learn to recognize how and where transpositions occur in your own most commonly used openings. You will, by now understand the general plans associated with each position and pawn structure regardless of the move order used to get there.
The main learning in this is approaching the opening and the transition into the middlegame. You will also learn the pawn structures that dictate the plans of every position before we try to memorize opening theory.
I grew up under the guidance of a Chess mentor of world class reputation and that is where I developed my interest in the game. I learnt the finer aspects of Chess from internationally renowned players and participated in several national level tournaments. As a player, the tactical play and end games are my greatest strength. I have been running Siddhachal Chess Academy from 2013 and continue to enjoy teaching children of all ages, and sharing my experience with them.
