Free Interactive Chess Steps Lessons for 1000-1750 rated players by National Master Han Schut at 4pm April 15

Dear all,
 
We are living in challenging times.
To support you through these difficult times, I will start streaming free, interactive, chess lessons on my YouTube channel.
 
The content of the lessons will be Step 4 of the Chess Steps Method. For more background on this method, please read my blog: https://www.chess.com/blog/HanSchut/the-steps-method-for-learning-and-teaching-chess
The official website (https://www.chess-steps.com/books-step-4.php) states that this Step is for players up to USCF 1750.
My teaching experience with this Step has been primarily at the 1000-1500 USCF rating range.
 
The lessons are for adults and kids.
 
The first lesson will be about: Elimination of Defence - Interfering
The set-up of each lesson will be:

  • Instruction
  • Exercises
  • Game analysis

In the first lesson I will analyze the game between Benjamin and Michael from the Sarasota February Tournament .
 
The lessons are interactive and I need active participation in the chat for the lessons to work.
The Steps method learns you to See (evaluate the position) and Analyze (calculate variations).
I can only teach that by asking the students a lot of questions.
 
To support active participation, I will award each lesson a 1-month Chess.com Diamond Membership to a student in my lesson.
The chess.com Diamond Membership will get you unlimited access to all the features of chess.com including video’s, lessons, puzzle rush and game analysis.
