This page is specifically for beginners including my students in both my adult "learn to play" classes and my chess club classes. I'll be putting more videos and resources here, but for now, here are a couple videos to review some basics.

The Difference between Checkmate and Stalemate

This can be hard to understand for beginners, and this video helps to clear it up.

Checkmating with King and Queen

This is a common checkmate that I've shown many of you, but it bears repeating and practicing until it becomes second nature.

The Value of the Pieces

Not all pieces are created equal. This video explains in general which pieces are more valuable than others.

Check back regularly as I will add more both from my work and others in order to help beginners get up to speed so they can enjoy the rest of my articles and videos on Better Chess Training.
