Endgame Basics Clinic

Friday, July 21, 2023
Entry Fee
Online registration only, till 5pm Friday
Round Times
What is The Opposition, and how do I use it in a pawn endgame? How do I checkmate my opponent with just a Rook and a King vs. a King? How about a Queen vs. a pawn on the 7th rank? If you are a beginner tournament player and would like to learn the basics of chess endgames, this BCC Mini Clinic Series is for you. Each class will last one hour (6:15-7:15pm), and admission is FREE! All classes will be taught by a team of High School volunteers – strong Expert-level players (USCF rating 2000+) with years of chess teaching experience.

The typical format will be an interactive teaching session, followed by hands-on practices and games.

After the mini clinic, students can stay for the Friday evening blitz tournament. If there is enough interest, a non-rated section will be added to the blitz tournament. Admission to the non-rated section will be discounted to $10 for all clinic attendees.
