Index of Coaching handouts and Blog posts, by Class

To see pages for juniors, try a different view.

There is also a guide to levels, ratings and grades.

The handouts used in our coaching sessions are shown on the tables below. We have substantial pages and more chatty blogs, and they are all given a level (A-D, where A are better players and G is for everyone) and a topic (Openings, Tactics, Endgames...). The tables show the level across the top and the topic down the side.

Chess Quotes

"The scheme of a game is played on positional lines, the decision of it is, as a rule, effected by combinations. This is how Lasker's pronouncement that positional play is the preparation for combinations is to be understood."
