The End

Earlier this week, I mentioned in passing to The Profit Burglar, that my six year old's chess was at the level where he knew all the pieces and their moves, but that I was finding it tricky working out a satisfactory way to play him or improve his game.

Paul suggested teaching him endgames. This seems to me to be an excellent idea, not least because as Benny will be learning checkmates in a simplified environment he will actually be winning the mini games we play which should be good for his motivation.

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Chess/The_Endgame looks to be a good primer.
