Congratulations!!All the bestI hava a chess question:In your opinion what are the pros & cons of playing G/29 vs G/30?For scholastic & adult players?Thank you
I also agree with the former poster. Congrats on getting married and stuff. But really what I want to know is do you think it's more useful to play the 3 minute pool or the 5 minute pool on ICC? Thanks!
Congratulations, very nice pictures, looks like everyone had a very nice time. I enjoy your chess blog.
yeah... marriage is kind of passe what I'd really like to know is your opinion on the relative merit of 1 minute vs fischer random played with 3 minutes on each side.

So do we call u Mrs.Spegial?
I was in I.S 318 when you went to teach chess, if it wasn't for you I would have never cared for it, to me you were someone so unique in Brooklyn, I was only 12, I saw you like a glass doll so beautiful and intelligent. I looked up to you so much. When I knew chess time would be coming I would get excited, I remember when you sent us all home with our own sets. For a child who's family struggled financially that was such an amazing gift. I am happy to see your life is going good and that you found love :) Thank you Elizabeth!
i am planning my own wedding now too, and its overwhelming.
Hi Everyone, I'm back from Vietnam / Myanmar (Burma for the old folks) where any URL containing the word 'blog' is censored! Sorry for the absences. Thanks for all the well-wishes!yes, Mariah, you should try your hardest to call me Mrs. Spiegel, but the old reliable "Miss" will do in a pinch. Anon 12:09 am Thank you so much for writing that. It's the nicest thing I heard anyone (who actually had to sit through it) say about my teaching in a long time, and it made me so happy. Ted search -- two suggestions: 1. there are nice places that do a lot of the world for you and 2. skip all the stupid conventional stuff: favors, flowers, matching bridesmaids dresses, table displays, professional invites, etc.: no one cares and it's a huge time and money sink.
Mazel Tov Mrs. Spiegel, so many blessings. I watched the movie, and although I know nothing about chess, it was incredible to see your teaching changing lives in front of my eyes. I can't believe you gave up your time 7 days a week. What an inspiration you are, what a heroine. And more prosaically you look absolutely radiant in that gown! I wish you all the joy in the world.
Brooklyn Castle is superb. You're so smart! You're a very dedicated, talented, and tactful teacher. I loved how you put chess in context, and explained how it teaches useful life skills.Louise Mensch is right, you are such an inspiration and a heroine.Hope all is well
