Tactics for Developing Players

10-week online course taught by IM Elliott Winslow


I am IM (International Master) Elliott Winslow, and I’ll be teaching this course! I will go over one of the greatest players (world champions, groundbreakers, players who advanced chess theory and practice) per week, including some of the history of the player and the time period in which they made their mark, and use their games to instill basic tactical and positional thinking to those in the class. I will do weekly game analysis of at least one game from the star of the week, and show how to find tactics in that game and through puzzles, and at the end of class either leave time open to go over games sent by the participants ahead of class, or for the students to play some games.

Class time: Wednesdays 7-8PM

Platform: Zoom meeting - link will be sent via email.

Class ideal for developing players in the range of unrated (beginner) to 1000 USCF rating.
