Description of Classes

Monday | "Pawn structure if the framework that shows the pieces where to go." During this lesson, you will get to know the 3 pawn structures that are weak: isolated, backward and doubled. We will review some tips and examples of what to do when you have these pawns and when you are playing against them

Tuesday | We will learn about two good kinds of pawns; connected and passed. we will review some positions and learn what to do depending on the strong pawn that we have.

Wednesday| In this class, we see how the kings can fight for themselves when only the pawns are left. We will learn the definition of opposition and outflanking and how to apply them in your endgames.

Thursday| In this class, we look at endings with king and pawn against a lone king. We will learn the best way to defend when you are behind and how to win if you are the one who is leading.

Friday| We learn the importance of the king in the endgame and see examples of how he becomes not only the most important but also the most powerful piece that can help you to win in the endgame
