Annual Mechanics’ Institute Chess Camp for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced
This is not a camp for players that want to
jump two rating classes in five days. You won’t learn how to win against
the Sicilian every time using the Grand Prix Attack. So why our camp and
not others? At the MI camp you will get a look inside a top players' laboratory
and get a feel for how they work on their game from the ground up. You
will learn not only the importance of analyzing your own games, but also
how to do it properly. You will learn to identify the critical points of
the game and to understand when and why things went wrong.
You will learn how to use ChessBase and Fritz
efficiently as part of a daily training program as well as utilizing resources
on the Internet such as TWIC and the Internet Chess Club. Today chess
books are cranked out at an incredible rate. Some of them are very good,
many are quite bad. We will help students learn to select that which is
