Advanced

So, you have now successfully competed your improver’s stage and now you are ready to learn more complex chess concepts.

By now, you would have learned how to play some of the openings and here we would be looking to learn how to exploit an advantage we have after the opening and how to exploit our opponent’s vulnerability.

Out tactics would become more complex and we will learn about discovered and double check. We would also take a step forward in understanding pins and how to take advantage of pinned pieces and pawns.

In addition, we will also learn how to identify our opponents’ intentions and defend against double attack, discovered check, double check and pins.

At last, we will start learning about the endgames. This is a very important part of the game as any mistakes here will almost certainly lead to losing the game. We will learn about passed pawns and the square of the pawn.

Now we will be looking at the middlegame and learning about the importance of having a plan and practice it in our games.

The game of chess does not always have to have a winner. The game can also end in a draw. In chess, there is a number of ways for a game to end in a draw. It can be a draw by a stalemate, by insufficient material, that means that we do not have sufficient material on the board to check mate our opponent, or draw by mutual agreement or by three fold repetition.

This is a short summary of some of the syllabus for the Advanced players.
