Back in the day I did some substitute teaching and one day I came head-to-head with a kindergartener who totally schooled me at chess. This was before I learned how to play and in my defense, and according to his friend who came up to watch, he was not playing entirely honestly, but I was none the wiser. (Also, did ALL 5-year-olds know how to play chess?) Well anyway, I'm realizing that Julian is coming up on his 5th and I need to get on it. So here's a little glimpse of our progress. I don't want to brag but he's pretty much a chess genius, and also, better than your kid.
