This is the first chess thread I've seen here. If you feel it is necessary to do the work, by all means go ahead. However, if nobody counters you on this statement, that's good enough for me.

I can see how people would assume naegros are bad with chess but I volunteered at a community gaming center when I was young. Naegros would get schooled pretty hard in simple shape-and-abstraction games like Quarto but they were usually good with chess.

There is a search-the-forum slot that yu can type in "chess" or any other subject. It will provide all the chess threads.

In any case, this link should take you there.

Blacks should be 13% of all Chess Masters.
But they are like .03%
So I guess this is a big thing in the black community.

9 year old white boy youngest chess champion ever.

The black boy is only the youngest AA to win that title not the youngest person to win.

I think that the ICC is rigged t keep players from reaching master rating at all costs. Specially if they notice you have a Spanish surname.

If the cultural trend cntinues, we'll probably be seeing an AA challenging for the chess world championship within the next ten years.

I wish more black men and boys would step out of the matrix and do things other than rapping, drugs, and fighting. I like writing and I'm working on my first book, need a little work on My grammar, a few mistakes were found every five to ten pages.

I learned to play at the age of 12 and it's been a source of interest for me all my life. A chess-teaching author I recommend is the late Fred Reinfeld. His books are always entertaining, easy to understand and instructive. The Complete Chess Payer is a very instructive. It covers all areas of the game from openings through middle game to ending.

What books do you recommend.

The book titled: "The Complete Chessplayer" is a very instructive one. It teaches the openings, the middle-game and the end-game.

What books do you recommend?
