Chess Camp is a new training system for beginning chessplayers, and for the parents and coaches who teach them. Starting with simple problems to illustrate key concepts, and then progressing to more complex positions, the student will learn by doing, methodically integrating new information with previous knowledge while building effective thinking habits at the board. The second volume in this series, Simple Checkmates, contains 618 structured problems, exercises, and fun puzzles that will help the student to: 1) learn basic checkmate patterns in the opening, middlegame, and endgame; 2) see when checkmate is imminent; and 3) understand that material isn't everything, as just a few pieces can defeat a whole opposing army.
