In the last twenty or so years, the age of education for chess has dropped drastically. There are more and more young chess players who compete in childhood at regional and national level or even at European and World Championships. Unfortunately, the current chess literature still provides virtually nothing, which could help parents and coaches to prepare and support their children / students for such challenges.
To fill this gap, Thomas Luther, Grandmaster and FIDE Senior Coach, and a team of seasoned experts have analyzed and evaluated over 2500 tournament games U8 and U10.
The result is an extensive collection of 68 examples and 247 test assignments, which gives an impression of what is to be expected and demanded in such tournaments.
