Chess Education 2

1. Anyone who would like a taster of a more serious chess environment than quick games on chess.com (Affiliate link), I would recommend tournaments run by the chess arbiter Adam Raoof.  While restrictions are in place, he runs events on Tornelo  https://tornelo.com/chess which gives chess arbiters more control. You could sign up for the free newsletter https://chesscircuit.substack.com/ What you need to look for is Hampstead Congress  https://chesscircuit.substack.com/p/hampstead-virtual-chess-congress
2. For a broader understanding of chess I recommend watching Youtube videos by GM Matthew Sadler on Alpha Zero. You can start with “Exactly How to Attack” | DeepMind’s AlphaZero vs. Stockfish.
3. Chess players use terminology which you can find on Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossary_of_chess
4. If you’d like a deeper look into chess strategy, check Aaron Nimzowitch. The importance of the centre, central pawns, overprotection, pawn chains, pawn breakthroughs, mysterious rook moves – that’s all coming from him.
5. I would like all my students to be able to do what Magnus Carlsen can do: to find out, please, check https://twitter.com/MagnusCarlsen There’s a video on him identifying the games of the past. I did tell you good chess players know chess history, didn’t I?
