endgame practice

Here is a website that allows you to practice different strategies.
Look at all the options it offers.
The link brings you to its section on endgames.
You can try as many times as it takes to beat the computer!

Game on!

Set up this game at home. Think about possible moves and threats for both sides.
How could either side develop their game?
Spend some time analysing it before you play.
Black could check white in 1 move, but is it worth playing?

Think about......

We will be looking at this game on Thursday at lunchtime if it is dry.
  • What moves and captures can the bishop make?
  • What moves and captures can the rook make? 

The next game focuses on endgame strategies.
How can you make sure it doesn't end in stalemate?

Calling all our chess nuts!

Tomorrow and every Friday lunchtime (as long as it is dry), the chess club can come to Ms.Wynne's room to practice and to study moves.
See you then!
