'ELEMENTS OF THE MIDDLEGAME'
“What do you do in middlegame positions where there are no tactics to play ? How should one continue after the opening is over and the position is even?
The SCF introduces positional play lecture sessions on topics which help the student identify important elements in the middlegame such as Attacking the King, the power of the 2 Bishops, Passed Pawns and others. Such elements will also help them in formulating a plan for action in the middlegame and provide ideas on how to increase the winning potential in their middlegames. These concepts are most useful in standard chess when there is time to ponder and plan deeply in each game. “
Highly recommended for SCF student whom are currently training in the following programme:
The 2nd Season of the QCD SG Chess League saw a new Champion in Pawnstars, primarily made up of the members of Fork You in the last season. They garnered 7match wins, 2 draws and only 1 loss taking the challenge trophy and $2000 first prize. Runner up was Woof! Woof! while the combined Bulldogs/Psalms 23 re-armed with IMs Rico Mascarinas and Louie Polistico came in strongly on 3rd place.
