Project Description

Defeat an opening in an online game of chess (Chess.com is recommended) and publish the PGN here inside the course. A PGN is the moves written in "algebraic notation", which is discussed in the course.

Other students will be able to play through your game on their own and analyze the moves. This is one of the most effective ways to improve in chess!
