  • The Price of Chess | 2 days and 5 hours ago | Reads: 3
    My attention was recently drawn to a discussion on Mumsnet about the cost of school chess clubs. The original poster was of the opinion that £6.50 a week for a school chess club (an hour after school) was rather too expensive. She thought that she ought to teach her son at home instead. The subject […]
  • Better Music Through Chess | 3 days and 5 hours ago | Reads: 4
    It’s 3:30 in the morning and I’ve just gotten back from a club (at the age of 55). I’m in the studio mixing 20 tracks of music for a band that has twenty plus musicians in it. I’ve scored the material which means writing all the musical parts down via sheet music. The song is […]

    When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all […]

    “We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing!” – Benjamin Franklin Readers may recall that I’ve made various game theory comments about Chess over the past two years. In practice, what it has meant for me is that I’ve not been comfortable with charging into the center […]
