Help for Chess Tutors

by abbyknot

Everyone who has taught chess to a classroom full of kids knows how difficult it is to keep their attention. I published this article over 10 years ago, but it is, and always will be, good information for chess teachers and promoters.

                        ** Are you a good teacher? **

I once attended an advanced math class in college which I and 90% of all the students flunked!  No, we weren't dummies; we were actually 'top of the class students', but our instructor was so boring that it was very hard to follow him. He was also the worst teacher I have ever seen in my entire life.

For example: On the 1st day of school he started a rant about radical exponents and wrote on the chalk board some equations. I raised my hand after 10 minutes of this and he reluctantly pointed at me and said, "WHAT!?".  I asked him, "How did ... Read more >>>

the Abbott gambits

by myswoose

Completed a unique chess game, in fact according to the chess data managers, the very FIRST ever in chess history that my series of gambit and checks (10 +) resulted in a deceptive and surprising mate in 34 moves; it shouldn't have ended that way, but please refer to it as the Abbott gambits. It looks so very different throughout the game than most judge play to be, with the big money feeling strong for the losing color until the (surprise) mating ritual which was mercifully ended before the act. The game proffers advice in advantage gained and lost, with seemingly strong persistent attack by the losing color met by adroit exploitation of position, and being down 2 pawns. Imagine the losing color checked 8 times during the game, black only 2 until the mate moves. Small wonder the big money is encouraged throughout the game, as the endgame approaches. Plenty of gambits are scattered throughout the game, not least the 10 checks; all helped the winner. Michael L. Abbott CPT, US Army ( ... Read more >>>

Unlimited Patience and Tolerance for Chess

by torakula

hello. This is Robert C. Monroe. I've been wanting to have a blog for some time now, and since I find social media is a total teardown in my judgment, I thought I'd best start my own blog--on my favorite site--and let the chips fall where they may. With respect to the internet and Tv, radio and film, I hope this blog doesn't go volcano anywhere, but I am a published author (just barely--two copyrights), and so I thought I'd best keep a Blog based upon a journal technique I taught myself in my first few years of college called: are you ready? A Philosophical Calendar So much for my methods...may this blog be a good outlet to anyone who reads and perhaps you'll see something reflected in it that gets you to contact me back....if you can find me on the net. With a philosophic Calendar one puts one idea or quote into something one has learned only that day....or perhaps one' favorite quote that runs around and runs around these days without emptying its repetitiv ...

Siegbert Tarrasch: \'He who fears an isolated Queen\'s Pawn should give up Chess.\'

by dsuttles

Seeing the above queen's pawn quote constantly on my Correspondence Chess game page used to make me queasy. After all, I was afraid of conceding isolated queen's pawns. Should I be making good on an old promise to myself to give up chess? Eventually, instead, I became emboldened and went all out to invite isolated queen's pawns. I even got a message from an opponent which said, 'Careful, I will try to isolate your d-pawn.' In no time I saw you could have an excellent game with this exciting new weapon. I also realised that I had better be on my very best form, or else. The new anxiety became a dread of not being on my very best form. Would the isolated queen pawn turn against me? Does a notable isolated queen pawn occasion spring to your mind, please? Do you have an IQP story? ... Read more >>>

The New King of Chess

by cc1422628594


Article from The New Yorker


When Magnus Carlsen became the world chess champion a few days ago, I don’t think anyone in the chess world lost money. All bets were on the almost-twenty-three-year-old Norwegian’s beating the reigning grandmaster, Viswanathan Anand. With play in Chennai, India, Anand had the home-court advantage, but, at nearly forty-four, he is getting old for top-level chess, and Carlsen gained momentum as the match went on. He didn’t lose in ten games. Perhaps the biggest surprise was in the last one, when Carlsen, with the prize in his grasp, played to win rather than accepting what looked to be Anand’s offer of a draw, which would have clinched it for Carlsen anyway. He could have been the world champion a couple of hours sooner.

Or even a year earlier. Carlsen, whom I wrote about for the magazine in 2011, had skipped the ... Read more >>>

New Chess Genius Discovered!

by cc1422628594

  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/09/opinion/09kristof.html Op-Ed Columnist China Rises, and Checkmates By NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF Published: January 8, 2011 If there’s a human face on Rising China, it belongs not to some Politburo chief, not to an Internet tycoon, but to a quiet, mild-mannered teenage girl named Hou Yifan.   Ms. Hou (whose name is pronounced Ho Ee-fahn) is an astonishing phenomenon: at 16, she is the new women’s world chess champion, the youngest person, male or female, ever to win a world championship. And she reflects the way China — by investing heavily in education and human capital, particularly in young women — is increasingly having an outsize impact on every aspect of the world.   Napoleon is famously said to have declared, “When China wakes, it will shake the world.” That is becoming true even in spheres that China historically has had little connection with, like chess, basketball, rare earth minerals, ...
