Hello, I enjoyed Greg’s article on the USCF site regarding chess study habits of kids, especially those of Ray Robson:
I was struck in the same way: how could a kid of Ray’s age at the time study so diligently and effectively? Many college students aren’t nearly as disciplined!
My 12 year old son (around USCF and FIDE 1950) falls under the category of the kid who needs to be pushed into studying, though he loves playing in tournaments.
It would be great to see follow-on on the topic of how to teach kids to study. I never really thought of the *method* of learning how to study, instead focusing on *what* he should be studying, which is largely from what his teacher recommends.
I would be very curious to know how Greg or others have helped kids how to learn to study. Of course, this skill would also be very useful to apply to other subjects outside of chess.
I do not know if you remember me but I use to play as Minstrel on Icc a few years ago. Was wondering if you still play online anymore. Best of luck to you. Ron.
I hope that I’m not mistaking you for somebody else but you played kung-fu-chess as “curtains” and you were a champion in the game. I have played you before and wish you would return to the game when you have spare time. Thanks!
i saw your article on time controls. totally agree. a further point on this subject would be, in this day how do you attract the next generation of chess players. younger players (kids etc) simply don’t have the time to play chess for a theoretical 2 games of 6 hours for 3 days and still participate in other activities. most of those surveys seem to be filled out by older players who want the longer time control to be able to compete with younger players, but this risks killing off the next generation of players. 90 minutes d30, is plenty long enough. i think if more tournaments adopted this time control you’d have fewer kids drop out of chess as they get older, which would help the entire chess community in the US. chess shouldn’t become a game for old people with a lot of time on their hands.
I hope this email finds you well. I was hoping I could purchase some advertising space in gregshahade.com

P.S. Oh, also I would like to know if linking to a gambling website would be a problem for you, since some of our clients have websites in this niche and are looking to get some exposure. These are only
