HIGH SCHOOL CHESS #25 AND FINAL FOUR PDF Print E-mail

For Denton High School chess club today, I wore my newly acquired (from Pep Rally on March 29) UT Dallas chess team T-shirt. One of my high school chess club students had on a UMBC (University of Maryland , Baltimore County) shirt! Was that his idea of an April Fool's joke? Also competing with UT Dallas and UMBC this weekend, April 2-3, are UTB (University of Texas at Brownsville) and Texas Tech. You can follow all the Final Four chess action right here on MonRoi. The high school students played ladder games after the T shirt showdown.

Small attendance at the Friday chess club on March 25, 2011 due to many conflicting events for the Denton High School students, though there was a record 33% female attendance (2 of the 6 students attending were female). Some ladder games were played and analyzed; we’ll try again for ladder games next week.

Barnes & Noble chess in education photoThe chess event at Barnes & Noble on March 19 was a success. About 25 people visited the chess tables staffed by Denton High School chess club officers. The officers taught activities from my books or played full games. I sold a couple of my books from my author’s signing table. Simon Halipir (photo by This e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ) took my favorite photo of the event.

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