All Skill levels, from brand new beginners to strong tournament players are welcome!
Hou Yifan became the youngest female grandmaster ever as a 14 year old, and became the women’s world champion at age 16. In the years since, she’s defended her title a number of times.
Our beginner students will see how Hou, as a child prodigy in China, used tactics and technique to rise to the top, mixing in her forks, pins, and checkmates into their lessons.
Our advanced students will examine some of her more complex struggles as she battled it out with the top players in the world, using tactics like the desperado bishop in the picture! She just took the pawn on g2. What's her tactic if white takes back with the king?
