This course is aimed at experienced players who have good chess understanding already and want to do better in future tournaments/games. Through student game analysis and positional exercises, we focus on understanding the plans behind moves, and how some plans are better than others. Opening systems are thoroughly analyzed, to give students a confident start to their games, a head start on others who have to figure everything out from the first moves. Students also reflect and give feedback on each other’s games, so that learning is co-constructed. This way, the level of chess understanding goes up collectively, as each individual contributes their ideas to the community of chess players. "
