What will you learn?
  • Notation
  • In chess, notations are used to identify, record and describe each move of the chess pieces in the game.

  • Tactics: Double Attack
  • This is one of the most powerful tactics. It happens when the single move sets up two threats against the opponent. The opponent can only attend to one threat, giving you an advantage.

  • Knight Fork
  • Also known as double attack, in this basic tactic a single piece attacks simultaneously on two or more pieces.

  • Back Rank
  • While delivering checkmate the player attacks the back rank of the opponent i.e. the king is checked along with his bank rank. This is done by either the queen or the rook.

  • Pin
  • This tactic is used to restrict the movement of one or more of the opponent’s pieces. In this, the attack piece is unable to move without exposing the target behind it. Here, bishop, queen or rook can be used.

  • Skewer
  • This basic tactic of chess consists of taking advantage by attacking two aligned pieces. Also known as x-ray attack, the skewer tactic is similar to the Pin tactic.

  • Discovered Attack & Check
  • Surprise your opponent and win the game with this dangerous tactic. It occurs when the player moves one piece out of the way to create an attack for the other piece.

  • Double-Check
  • It is a powerful form of the Discovered Attack & Check. Using this tactic, two pieces are being moved to put the king in check simultaneously.

  • Destroying the defender
  • The layer captures a defensive piece that leaves one of the valuable pieces of the opponent undefended.

  • Decoy
  • A decoy in chess is used to make the opponent move from a critical square for you to take control and capture the piece.

  • Deflection
  • This forces the chess piece of the opponent to leave the square or rank it occupies, thus exposing a valuable piece.

  • Windmill
  • Also known as the seesaw, this tactic is a combined attack of discovered checks and regular checks. It takes place when one player gets the advantage to deliver multiple checks in sequence. The windmill move features winning a lot of opponents material.

  • Square Vacation
  • In square vacation, the first piece is moved to give space to another piece to go to the specific square. It is the sequence of moves that results in tangible gain.

  • Line opening & closing
  • It is important to know some detailed opening lines. These are the diagonals which are open i.e. not obstructed by pawns. This is an important part of the game that opens up new possibilities.

  • Basic Endgame Lessons
  • Learn and work through the basic endgame lessons that are the most decisive part of the game.

    Highly recommend this academy. The teachers are wonderful and take all possible extra efforts towards the child. Time to time friendly tournaments helps in motivating the child further. As we stay abroad they make themselves very much convenient to match the timings and our preferences.
