Crossword puzzle- interactive and fun chess learning!

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Hello, chess enthusiasts

I have created a chess crossword puzzle- a fun way to learn about chess in an interactive way. It is about basics, a bit of middle-game terminology, and about pawn structures. I hope you enjoy it, and if you have any suggestions about other featurs that you would like to see on the Educational Chess site, please let me know- I will do my best to make it happen.  Here is the link to the interactive chess crossword puzzle: http://www.educationalchess.com/crossword_puzzle/crossword_puzzle.html

Sportsmanship in chess- ancient tradition or not?

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

Hello, everyone!

 As usual, I have had a busy schedule. But while I keep adding more pages and content, I spoke with some parents regarding good sportsmanship in chess. It has always been a very important topic to me, and to be honest, now it seems to be more of a lost tradition.  And this is why I wrote an article about chess sportsmanship- based on my personal experiences and philosophy, which you can view here.
Enjoy and drop me a note if you have any questions or comments.
