What if I am unable to participate in some or many of the classes? We do actually not assume that anyone will be able to participate in all classes. With time differences of up to 12 hours between the far East and the West Coast of the United States, the timings of some classes will not work for you. For this reason, we are working on having them saved in a vault for revisiting for a week or two after broadcasting. What we do not want anyone to feel is that the lessons will not be useful if you skip some of them, even within the same course.

Do not be too hung up on ticking boxes. Are the classes fitting for my level? The beauty of chess is that it is very hard to play, but easier to understand. You may not understand a position before it is explained to you, but afterwards it is hard to see why you felt it was difficult!
So, some explanations may be a bit more explicit than the grandmasters need and some details will elude the club player with limited experience, but there will be something new and challenging for everyone in every class. Furthermore, if you have any doubts or questions, you can communicate with the lecturers on the Forum.
They will pop in from time to time to answers questions relating to their classes and we are sure that you will find a lot of support from your fellow students as well. How does joining Chess Academy compare to private coaching? In one-on-one coaching, you get the full attention of a trainer on your needs and this can both be very reaffirming and reassuring. All of us train students one on one from time to time and it has its advantages. But generally for chess learning, classroom work is not significantly inferior, as the knowledge conveyed will be the same and the encouragement to learn from the trainers will be the same.
You can ask questions. You can submit positions and games to some lessons and post them on the forum for feedback. The lecturers will not have time to answer everything, but as not all questions are unique, most will be answered. How does the Forum work? Like most other Internet forums with many possible debate points.
Some will circle around the lectures where the coaches will answer questions relating to their last lesson only.
Some topics will be chosen by the users entirely. The only thing different is that you have to be a subscriber to log into the forum.
Our moderator will be busy enough with the subscribers. Why do I have to sign up for a full year? What if its not for me? In principle, our fees are non-refundable, but if you find out after days that signing up to Chess Academy has been a horrible mistake, please get in touch with our admin team and we will be happy to have a conversation with you.
What if I am new to chess, what can you offer me? But we are planning to expand with additional classes for those new to chess over time. At the moment we have the u classes in the schedule, which will aim to make things as accessible as possible to those with less experience in chess.
AAGAARD POSITIONAL PLAY PDF
Published: November, Reviews "Positional Play offers the reader well-chosen positions to solve, drawn primarily, but not exclusively, from recent practice. These positions are arranged around three themes: weaknesses, pieces and prophylaxis. Even those unable to solve the positions will derive benefit from the effort and the thorough solutions. Accepted practice holds that all chess players should incorporate thirty minutes a day solving tactics. An extra half hour going through Positional Play would be time well spent. Highly Recommended. His examples clearly illustrate the themes he is trying to describe, and the solutions to the exercises are clear and comprehensive.
