The Art of Defense

6-week online course taught by FM Paul Whitehead.

We all want to attack, but to be comfortable and skillful at defense is just as important.
Learn how to safeguard your king and drum up counterplay using chapters and examples taken from The Art of Defense in Chess, by Polugaevsky and Damsky (1988).
Stalemate, Blockade, Trench Warfare, Counterattack, Traps: these are just a few of the concepts we will take up in this six-week course. 
Be prepared for a little homework - and become a chess player who's hard to beat!

We strongly encourage everyone to sign up for the whole 6-week course. Classes will be recorded, and if anyone misses a class, they can listen back anytime.
