PEER-REVIEWED CHESS ARTICLE PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Fri, May 08 2009 (17:06)
Publication in peer-reviewed journals is the gold standard of academic respectability. I have an article in the current issue of TEMPO, the peer-reviewed journal of the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented. Here is the citation and a description: Root, A. W. (2009, spring). Checkmating advisory and summer boredom. Tempo, 29(2), 10-14. This article describes the evolution of Strickland Middle School (SMS) advisory (2005-2009), from study halls for all to enrichment advisory options, including chess, for capable students. Dr. Root also lists chess activities and chess equipment used at SMS and at MOSAIC (Coppell Gifted Association summer courses). For my next article for TEMPO, I will share how gifted and talented teachers use chess in their classrooms. If you teach gifted-and-talented students, and would like to share your chess-in-the-classroom story, please email me, Dr. Alexey Root, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

CHESS CLOCKS... UNDERSTANDING TIME PDF Print E-mail
Written by Chris Bird on Thu, Apr 23 2009 (05:43)

Most serious games of chess are, and have always been, played using chess clocks. The main reason for using a chess clock is so that the game does not take an infinite amount of time to play. Even correspondence chess, played via regular mail or email, has a limit to the amount of days/weeks/months a player can use for moves to ensure a game does not go on forever.

 

However, the world of chess clocks can be a daunting one, especially to beginners although even the most experienced professionals sometimes have problems getting to grips with new clocks and time control ideas that are cooked up by some of the most innovative organizers.

 

In this article, I want to try and provide an understanding of what is meant by various chess clock related chess terms such as increment, flag, 40/2, Bronstein, time-delay, analog, etc. Let’s start with the basic information needed to understand a chess clock and how that relates into the chess world.
