    a friend of mine was involved in one the games where Samuel Reshevsky played dozens of people at the same time. This was many years ago. He is still friendly with Reshevsky’s daughter.

    In Learn Chess Fast, Reshevsky has an example in which one sacrifices the queen to set up a check take queen fork, which leads to a two castle fork, which depopulates the other side.

    Checkers is too easy. But it could teach control of your pieces and strategy.

    My Dad kicked my butt at checkers but would not learn chess. He grew up on a farm way back when and they played checkers and cribbage and other card games a lot, so he was good at those.

    I could generally beat cats and small children – once I was playing with my grandson, who was about seven, and we were floundering around and not getting anywhere. We finally gave up, or we’d be playing yet.

    I’ll able to teach someone how to play the basics of chess, but by the 3rd game, I get beat. I’m pretty decent at checkers and Mancala.
