Chess Camp Vol. 3

113 pages, hardback, Mongoose, 1. edition 2010.

Incl. 7% Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

Chess Camp is a new training system for beginning chessplayers, and for the parents and coaches who teach them. Starting with simple problems to illustrate key concepts, and then progressing to more complex positions, the student will learn by doing, methodically integrating new information with previous knowledge while building effective thinking habits at the board.

In the first volume, Move, Attack, and Capture, the student will discover how the chess pieces move; start to get a feel for the chessboard; learn to look for threats, captures, and elementary tactics; and develop an understanding of what each piece can do for his or her position - and against the opponent's.

The second volume in this series, Simple Checkmates, contains 618 structured problems, exercises, and fun puzzles that will help the student to: 1) learn basic checkmate patterns in the opening, middlegame, and endgame; 2) see when checkmate is imminent; and 3) understand that material isn't everything, as just a few pieces can defeat a whole opposing army.

In Checkmates with Many Pieces, the third volume in the series, the student will: 1) find his or her way to mate in more complex positions; 2) start to learn the chess openings and their respective typical checkmating scenarios; 3) begin to apply basic tactical tools such as the pin, discovered check, and double check; and 4) see the great difference that small changes can make in a position.

Igor Sukhin has been using the game of chess for more than two decades to teach children. His books have been selected repeatedly as recommended reading by the Russian Department of Education.

The author of the acclaimed children's chess book Gary's Adventures in Chess Country (also published by Mongoose Press), Sukhin has written more than 100 titles, with over a million copies currently in print.
