The Boy is becoming interested in chess. I like this, in that I like to play chess. I also like the game as a general rule for kids, as it's something that requires thought.
He's just learning the basics right now, but perhaps in the next year or so we can start strategy and theory. It will be his pace and his choice, though. I don't care for the stage moms and dads that I see at tournaments.
I've started flipping through a couple of my older books, like on the Caro-Kann and the Pirc. It's good to refresh my mind with it. Perhaps I'll try a couple tournaments this year. It's been a while.
