A beginners perspective

Ok, so as an old bloke, I’m new to chess. I’ve tried to start a few times using books etc, but the progress always seem to wither. I’ve tried two of the chess King apps now, this one and “ beginner to club player” which is a collection of a few of their starter courses. Both have been great. They have a structured approach to bringing up your chess knowledge then building on top of that. Eg. This course has separate sections for teaching you how each of the pieces can be used in check and then drills you in area before moving on to another piece. Then once you have mastered each pieces use goes on to a free for all puzzles. For me this is great, as I both have fun and build my experience. If you get the puzzle wrong, unlike some “check in one” puzzle games, this gives you hints showing lines of attack and defence. Its also great to see that most puzzles are actual endings from real games. Oh yeah. And the puzzles you get for free will keep you busy for long enough to make up your own mind.
