Written by Alexey W. Root on Sun, Dec 21 2008 (21:41)
Enrollment is now open for the spring 2009 Chess in Education Certificate Online Courses. The semester begins January 12, 2009. If you miss that deadline, you can sign up for the second 8-week semester, which begins March 9, 2009. You earn three undergraduate or graduate credits per course. In the spring of 2008, I had 38 students. In the fall of 2008, I had 37 students. Spring 2009 looks to be the busiest yet, as I already have 33 students and registration is still open. I am pleased the courses are popular!

Chess Simul at UF PDF Print E-mail
Written by Robson on Tue, Dec 09 2008 (15:31)

 

 

First of all, I would like to apologize for not updating my blog for quite a while. After not blogging after one tournament, when you think about blogging again you have to do two tournaments, and now I have played too many tournaments to really recap! So, I will instead start anew from two days ago.

 

Two days ago I did a simultaneous exhibition as well as a lecture on my game against Renier Gonzalez at the University of Florida. After I did the lecture, which I think was ok, I started the simul. The rules for the simul were that there could be no players rated higher than 1800 and that there would be a maximum of 25 players. I also gave each player two passes, in case they weren’t yet sure where to move.

DALLAS DESTINY WINS USCL PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Sat, Dec 06 2008 (22:25)
On Saturday, December 6th, Dallas Destiny (a team comprised of UTD students) won the US Chess League for the second year in a row. I watched the Destiny's matches in part because three of the four players competing in the finals for Dallas were current (IM Marko Zivanic) or former (FM Igor Shneider and WFM Bayaraa Zorigt) students of mine in the Chess in Education Certificate Online Courses. Congrats to Dallas Destiny!

Chess Quotes


And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
