Want to test your chess teacher skillz? See if you have what it takes!
Start by downloading the following chessbase file. (or pgn here)
In the first part, you have a collection of games, one but sometimes two from a player*, and you need to figure out what the player's main problem is. You can choose from:
looks only one move ahead
doesn't look at what opponent is going to do
doesn't develop pieces
doesn't know typical opening traps
trades too much
makes pawn breaks too quickly
doesn't make pawn breaks
Not all weaknesses are used.
In the second part, labeled "Whose Opening is Better?" you have a few positions that an engine or theory calls equal, but which in scholastic chess strongly favor one side. Determine which side is winning and explain why.
it's for a teacher training I'm doing. thanks.
*especially notice Bryan Parra is the first and last game.
