Project Description

After completing the course, defeat an opponent in a game using one or more of the tactics learned in the course.

Upload the PGN (move list) of the game to the course so other students can follow your moves, analyze the game, and improve.

Going through games and analyzing mistakes is one of the best ways to improve at chess!
