Dusting Off an Old Bible

Walter Korn’s MCO13: my oh my, I’ve not opened the pages of my old chess “Bible” in… I honestly can’t remember how many years. But now it’s by my side once more.

The quality of my chess has declined in recent years since I’ve stopped playing seriously. It’s time to start studying again, and to give my game the attention it deserves.

  1. For the past few months I’ve been brushing up my chess game as well. While never able to hold a candle to you or Ivan in his prime, I still enjoy the game. I’m using a set of DVDs from The Great Courses, “How to Play Chess: Lessons From an International Master” taught by Jeremy Sillman. Perhaps you’ve heard of him or maybe even played him at one time or another. Simultaneously, I’m sharing the lessons with Danny, my 8-year-old grandson by way of Aiden’s marriage with Lisette. He’s a very sharp Korean/Puerto Rican mixed child, who plays a very aggressive game. We go out to a local Starbucks every Monday evening and have our lesson, followed by a game. It’s one of the highlights of my week.
