Topic Purpose

An earlier lesson taught a basic opening strategy for White and Black. Now that you’ve been using it and know more about chess strategy, these lessons will dive deeper into using these openings. 

Also, the thing I hate THE MOST in chess games is losing a game in the ending that I should win. Advanced FBCC classes include endgame studies so that its members excel at winning endgames. Our players are better prepared for endgames than just about anyone else and often win games in the ending that they would otherwise lose.
