Chess Homework 2

January 12, 2013

The chess homework in section two is all about king and pawn endgames. I selected some of my favorite instructional problems of this kind and placed them in order of ascending difficulty. If your child is stumped by any of these problems he/she should seek out a Torres Chess and Music Academy teacher for an explanation.
