Dual chess dad

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.

  1. My daughter is in Kindergarten and starting to play in tournaments. We live in San Carlos and we’re looking for people her age to play with. Maybe your sons might be interested? Drop me a line. Thanks.
