REPORTING WITHOUT MONROI IS HARD WORK PDF Print E-mail

On September 5-7, 2009 I played in the first-ever U.S. Women's Open in Tulsa, OK, won by University of Texas at Dallas sophomore WFM Saheli Nath. I was the reporter for the Women's and for the concurrent tournaments for Chess Life Online (articles online now) and Chess Life (articles will be in the December 2009 and January 2010 issues). The concurrent events were the U.S. Senior Open (won by GM Larry Christiansen) , Okie Open (won by IM Michael Brooks), and Masters Round Robin (won by Conrad Holt, IM Bryan Smith, and IM Ray Kaufman). Since the organizers did not arrange for MonRoi at these events, it took time to find and photocopy score sheets. Sometimes, the writing on those score sheets was poor. It was hard to know what moves were played. Unlike MonRoi, where it is easy to replay games, reporting was hard work.

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

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