On my Amazon page for Children and Chess: A Guide for Educators, I noticed a review excerpt from Chessville. A Chessville review excerpt was also on the Amazon page for Science, Math, Checkmate: 32 Chess Activities for Inquiry and Problem Solving. From that information, I located reviews of my books at Chessville. Thanks to the reviewer, Rick Kennedy.

 
U.S. OPEN CHESS RESULTS PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Tue, Aug 12 2008 (04:09)
Last night the dry erase board stated, “Denton Chess Club: Home of IM Doug Root, 4th place U.S. Open.” Results of the U.S. Open are here. During the week of August 4-8, Doug went to work at the University of North Texas, then drove 45 minutes to the tournament site, and then played chess from 7 p.m. until around midnight. As another player pointed out, though, Doug had the advantage of staying at home rather than in a hotel room. For all competitors, nine rounds of chess is a challenging task. Congrats to the 381 participants in the U.S. Open!

COPPELL CHESS COURSE PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Fri, Aug 08 2008 (19:05)
Today (Friday, August 8) was the final day of my chess teaching week at MOSAIC, summer courses by the Coppell Gifted Association. From 9-10:30, my son William assisted me with my 16 students, grades 4-7. After pairs of students finished practicing, and getting tested on, a basic checkmate such as king and queen against king, William would teach them five moves of a chess opening. Students wrote down the five moves, thus learning notation too. From 10:30 to noon William went to engineering.

At that site, you can also view slides from past Chess in Education workshops. More about the workshop in my upcoming Chess Life report.

FAMILY FUN WITH MONROI PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Sun, Aug 03 2008 (17:31)
My husband IM Doug Root is playing in the U.S. Open. Tonight, thanks to MonRoi, my children and I are watching Doug's round 2 game live. It's fun to be able to see the game without having to drive 45 minutes to watch in person. I wasn't sure what Doug would play for his 16th move, but both Clarissa (age 15) and William (age 11) guessed 16. Bxf6. They were right. After move 18, we entered the game moves into Fritz. From move 18 on, we have compared what Fritz recommends to what's actually been played.

Chess Quotes


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