Chess Mom at Chess Life

Dr. Alexey Root interviews GM Susan Polgar in the latest issue of Chess Life magazine, and it has some surprises! The Grandmaster explains her philosophy in teaching chess to small children and annotates a game from her son Tommy.

Dr. Root also offers ten suggestions from her husband IM Doug Root for helping young children to learn chess and enjoy their earliest experiences. One of his interesting thoughts: "Play checkers to help your child develop strategy." You can find her story at Chess Life Magazine online.

As mentioned in an earlier post, Polgar's son Tommy won the Grade 2 section of the recent National K-12/Collegiate tournament in Florida (her younger son Leeam also has begun playing chess). Click here to play his final-round game that netted him the championship.
