The course is based on the 3 other courses: Beginners to Club, Chess Strategy for Beginners and Total Chess Endings. We carefully selected tasks that are not so easy to play, but not so complex to study. The material is adapted to beginners, and contains a large number of explanations and hints. Much attention is devoted to methods to win having an extra pawn. But we also recommend to pay attention to the technique of standard mates (starting with mates by heavy pieces and ending with mates by bishop and knight).
