Welcome to the 2017-2018 Chess Season. Do set up an account for chesskid.org or kidchess.org at home. Show me that you are willing to seriously work at chess.
Once I know that you know all of the basics, you will play a best-two-out-of-three sets of Pawns Game.
* Avoid doubled pawns. * Use pawn chains well. * Know en passant: in passing.
* Remember that the pawn is the lowest man but it is often just as important as the highest officer around.
(If the enemy moves two places forward on first move, you have the right to capture it. Capture takes place
on the square that the pawn moving two squares forward passes through if your pawn is next to the enemy pawn.) Pawns Game
Light square in the lower right hand corner! Never settle for a stalemate when you can possibly win the game!
Don’t pay attention to the captured pieces off the chessboard. The only pieces that count are the ones on the board.
White does not always win. It does not even win most of the time. The moves are important, not the color of pieces.
There are normally four options if your chessman is attacked. 1. Move the man.
2. Protect the man so that an even trade is possible.
3. Attack another enemy man.
4. Create a bigger threat than your opponent has. (For example, by attacking a more valuable enemy piece or by
seriously threatening the Kind with check or checkmate. The threat may balance your opponent’s threats.
