William R. presented his last-round game from SuperNationals V. Pairs of students followed along on their boards as he showed the moves on the demonstration board (Smart Board). William halted the game at critical points so that the pairs could spend five minutes figuring out what happened next. Special visitor to the Denton High School chess club was Jonathan K., who had been part of Dr. Alexey Root’s chess class at Strickland Middle School five years ago. Read, Write, Checkmate: Enrich Literacy with Chess Activities (Libraries Unlimited, 2009) features the work of Jonathan and his classmates. Now Jonathan is a freshman at Tarrant County College and has started a chess club there.

Austin showed the finale of his round 2 win (which he began showing last week) over a player rated between 1500 and 1600 USCF. Luis showed the first 20+ moves of his win over a 1595-rated player. Both Austin and Luis paused their games on the demonstration board at various points so that the others (following along on their chess boards) could analyze what they thought would happen next. Dr. Alexey Root discussed plans for the remaining meetings of the year (April 26, May 3, May 10, and May 17).
