Chess Camp is a new training system for beginning players, their parents and coaches. Starting with simple problems to illustrate key concepts and then progressing to more complex positions, the series methodically integrates new information with previous knowledge while building effective thinking habits on the board. The series is the official beginner's guide of the United States Chess Federation.
In this fourth book of the series, Elementary Endgames, the student will:
learn how to deliver fundamental checkmates such as a king and a rook against a lone king;
discover how to avoid stalemating the opposing king, and how to induce stalemate when threatened with checkmate; and
develop an understanding of concepts and a sense of confidence in the final phase of the game.
