HIGH SCHOOL CHESS MEETING THREE PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Fri, Sep 17 2010 (09:17)
Today, September 17, was our first ladder game.  All students were required to take notation. I asked those who had taken notation before to challenge those who are new to notation. That way, the experienced chess players were able to help their opponents keep up their score sheets. The player who won in the least amount of moves got first place on the ladder, the second fastest winner (in terms of moves played) earned the second spot on the ladder, and so forth. Now that the ladder is established, the next time we have a ladder game it will proceed as documented in Read, Write, Checkmate: 32 Chess Activities for Inquiry and Problem Solving. Minutes are posted here.

On September 10, 2010 Denton High School chess club had its second meeting of the academic year. Nineteen students attended. Meeting minutes are here. When I gave my lecture about the Scholar’s Mate, I was very impressed with the attentiveness and note-taking of the students. After the lecture, they eagerly debated (chess boards and sets out) what the best defense was for black. That is, what is the best third move for black after 1.   e4 e5 2. Bc4 Nc6 3. Qh5

Other than our planning meeting last spring, today was the first meeting of the Denton High School Chess Club. Minutes can be found here. When candidates made their speeches for officer positions, I found out that we have more USCF-rated players than I thought.  We have players with ratings of 1464, 1287, 1240, and 795. We hope to participate in a tournament in Irving on National Chess Day (October 9).

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