LearningChess introduced a new achievement system, where users can collect badges by solving puzzles and lessons.
As a chess trainer I tried to use many programs and web sites to find most suitable tool to teach children chess in chess club, chess academy or chess group in leisure center. There are children and students with really varied levels of chess knowledge. They have also different approach to study. They love chess, but they don’t like memorizing and more, they are kids, they want to play.
Strategy games such as chess, go, draughts, backgammon and bridge have traditionally been associated with higher thinking skills. Children who play these games benefit from improved concentration levels and problem solving. The problem for many teachers and parents is that they do not possess the game knowledge or confidence to be able to teach their children, but the professionals from ChessPlus have the solution.

The Internet has changed the way people learn and play chess. Grandmasters used to prepare against each other by requesting score sheets to be sent using snail mail and now we have free databases with millions of games available to us at any time. Chess engines have completely changed the way we analyse games and finding guides and books online is easier than ever. With so many resources available there is also an overload of possibilities and it’s often hard to find the right ones for oneself.
After the publication of the six volumes of my endings book series, the 7-piece endgames database of the Lomonosov University became available. This is basically a program which determines if the position leads to a draw or can be won by either side – with 100% certainty. Some examples taken in my previous books have been proven wrong, that is why I have decided to write this book in which I deal with and analyze the most well-known 7- piece positions, paying particular attention to rook endgames as they occur very often in tournament games. I have tried to select and examine a few examples for each type of endgame and by doing so I hope I will be able to help my readers to gain insight into the mysteries of endgames.
