This Girls Academy we discussed the U.S. Women’s Champion Anna Zatonskih and analyzed her 3rd round game against superstar Irina Krush. We learned about pins, discovered attacks, good and bad bishops, and practiced good opening strategy (CDC) and mating attacks.

Then girls each played a game against some one they have never played before, and I was very impressed with how well they were focussing!
