Future World Champion II

An early coaching session -
T.C. whispers strings of Najdorf theory into Peter's ear

Mother and son doing well

Peter: "In 15 years I'll be kicking your arse".


Adam FF said...

Congratulations Tom!
But will be seeing as much of you next season?

Jonathan B said...

Judging by pic 4 he's got the Chivers Cheeky Grin.

Tom Chivers said...

If it takes fifteen years for him to kick my ass, he'll never be world champion :)

But I'll only teach him chess if he wants to learn.

I guess I'll play a similar amount next season Adam, but just at a lot lower standard :)

Jonathan B said...

Only if he wants to learn? That's loser talk.

Clearly I'm going to have to assume the role of chess uncle. I'll start Saturday with a reading from my book on French Tarrasch sidelines.

Congratulations to Peter, Sarah & Tom from all at the Streatham Library Chess Club. We're thrilled for you.

Once again we see that the road to, "It's my way or the highway", inevitably starts with good intentions!
