The program of classes is a comprehensive course, aimed at the improvement of student’s logical universal understanding of the game as a whole. The study&play program is adjusted to the level of a student or group.
Beginners learn the rules of the game, and once they are proficient with the basics, we move on to studying more advanced material, discussing strategy and tactics of the game. A set of illustrative positions is given to students to be trained over the board in a practical game situation. The most advanced students, active in competitive play, learn to build their own opening repertoire.
All of the material presented at classes is given to the students in a printed version, so they can return to the study examples on their own. All of the students are given homework after class.
