How about Chess Mentor courses aimed at 12 to 14 hundred or so?
Doesn't Chess Mentor already have lessons aimed at those levels?
It has LESSONS (needs more) but no courses that I know of.
new additions by silman. not to offend the authors of the other courses, they are all really good, but silman's courses in particular have been invaluable to me.
Yay, I think the end game and maybe a few about gambits.
I'm just praying I make it through all the king pawn ending lessons without going insane!
A course focused on the Sveshnikov would be great. There are few resources here at the moment for such a popular variation of the Siciian.
The smothered mate course by Silman were pretty good for a beginner.
you mean by Patrick Wolff?
Yes, of course! I just read that other post that mentioned Silman, so I guess that name stuck in my brain. Sorry.
cool, glad you liked it and found it appropriate! (i thought it was)
I've got the Idiot's Guide to Chess by him, as well. Haven't read much yet though. I wonder why he closed his web site down.
His site may have been neglected, or the domain name expired.
I want an opening dealing with COMPLICATED king and pawn endings (many pawns on each side). Also for fun checkmating with 3 knights and other bizzare piece combos.
I'd also like to see a course on securing a draw when having a weaker position or being down a pawn or two.
There is enough for the middlegame from Silman, i think you should make some endgame courses for rating about 2000, thats really missing!
More tactics s'il vous plait (please)!
Possible a suggestion box for other things also?
The exposition of Aaron Nimzowitche's My System book.The chapters over protection,isolated queen pawn,french defense set up,exchanging,invading open files,these would be great to try out concrete examples.Also Capablanca's fundamental themes.The f7 sacrifice,smith mrra gambit positions and danish mating patterns!!
