ST. VINCENT'S CHESS #19 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Wed, Apr 16 2014 (22:09)
This was the last chess day for spring 2014 for St. Vincent's chess. There was pizza and all the students stayed together rather than separating into three groups by level. Dr. Root taught Progressive Chess (Scottish variation). Briefly,White starts with one move, then Black plays two moves, then White plays three moves, and so forth. Dr. Root noted that a turn ends when check is given and that the checked king must use its first move to get out of check. And that it cannot move into check during its turn. The variant teaches students to make every move count and to plan ahead. Students played Progressive chess. Then some students switched from Progressive Chess to bughouse for the last 30 minutes.
