This weekend my younger son played (in the kindergarten section) at the California State Championship in Santa Clara. I am so proud of him. This was his second-ever tournament (after a quiet quad at NHC the previous weekend), and he did rather well.
So now I’m a chess dad for two.
I am beginning to wonder how the relationship of the two brothers will evolve: will it foster competition or collaboration? My hope is that they quickly realize that with collaboration they can achieve more, and that 1+1=3. Time will tell.
