Playing the game of chess offers players a unique opportunity for lifelong learning including strategy, tactics and concentration. Each week, chess instructors Dwight Ford of Anatoly Karpov School of Chess and Glenn Gustitus will support players with handouts and encourage the use of strategy through instruction before club play. While playing, you will learn common patterns, how to methodically build a position, set traps and analyze variations depending on your level of play.
