Chess Lesson from the Chess Queen, Susan Polgar

Surfing the internet, looking for interesting info, GiLoCatur found some from Susan Polgar's famous chess blog

her advise on playing good chess to the children

"to first get the knights and bishops out to control the center of the board, to not move the same pieces twice in the beginning, and to put the king in a safety position."

Susan strongly believes that,

a) "Chess inspires logical thinking and decision-making"

b) "Every move is a change in circumstances like in real life. To have young people see changes is an important skill."

c) ... and if chess were used more in schools, society would be better educated.
