About This Class

This course covers checkmating patterns:

  • Back-Rank Mates

  • Queen & Pawn Mates

  • Rook & Bishop Mates

  • Rook & Knight Mates

  • Bishop & Knight Mates

  • 2 Bishops Mates

This course really helps to see the whole board and to learn how to make your pieces interact and checkmate the enemy king with only 2 pieces!

I will demonstrate not only the concept of these tactical chess manoeuvres but also the logic behind finding these moves in your own chess games.

This course is broken down into 6 sections (one for each pattern). In each section you will find one or a few patterns and puzzles to solve.

Also each section contains an analysis of a game played between two chess grandmasters to demonstrate how effective these mating patterns can be. And finally I prepared a quizz for you to practice.

I look forward to seeing you in class!

Sincerely,

Viktor
