intermittent thoughts on my life and work as the chess coach at IS 318, a public middle school in Brooklyn
It might be an interesting little series, this Know Your Neighbor thing. I daresay it's good for people down in the city to have that. People probably get lost in the crowd frequently due to sheer numbers.I was in Manhattan for the New Yorker Open over the weekend, and James was my first opponent. He does play well, to be sure. I get smothered in clouds of despair hearing him talk of studying chess six hours a day... I'm lucky to get that much study time in a week. And this is the kind of talent that I have to face when I go to these tournaments! Yikes.(I took a screen shot of the frame in the video where James' library is behind him, and it seems we have a number of book selections in common. I sometimes get curious about other people's chess libraries.)
I really love this video.
