Enjoying the warm summer evening with my bride, sangria, and a cheese plate, I opened the Chess Informant Solver's Kit and chose a random set of problems. On the first, I failed until the third try. The correct answer, once discovered, is remarkably simple and potent.
Scholastic players and parents: The label "Problem of the Week" links to posts that contain my "lesson of the week." These blog posts serve to reinforce what is presented in my after school and in-school chess clubs.
I am available for one-on-one lessons in person or online. Use the contact form below if interested.
