Checkmate Like a Champion

Checkmate is the ultimate tactic! How many checkmate patterns do you know?  Have you heard of Anastasia’s mate?  What about the Swallow’s Tail mate?  We will teach you the most important and interesting checkmate patterns – from the basic to the beautiful.

Beginners will learn how to execute famous checkmating patterns, reinforcing their basic tactics and building their pattern recognition.   Advanced students will see that these checkmate patterns really do occur in master games, sometimes as hidden threats. After this camp, you will be able to checkmate like a champion!
