Chess: The Basics and Beyond
with Tac Tacelosky
Have you ever watched people playing chess and thought "I'd like to be able to play"? Or maybe you know the rules and how the pieces move but aren't sure what to do next? This class is for you. You'll learn (or review) the rules, then move to how to coordinate the pieces, with a smattering of tactics, strategy and opening theory. By the end of the class, you'll be able to confidently sit across the board and say "Let's play!"
Note: While participants may bring any chess set, a tournament chess set is recommended: $17 on Amazon (green roll-up vinyl chessboard).
Tac Tacelosky co-hosts a Monday Night Chess Meetup in Dupont Circle, where he lives during the week. He's been enjoying chess for more than 4 decades.
