The Times-News Interviews Us

Chess Enthusiasts Passionate But Low Profile interviewed me, Desmond, Dylan, Erwin Kett, Barry Eacker and Norman Friedman in a lovely article about chess in the Magic Valley.

Here is an excerpt:
“People believe you have to be intelligent to play chess. No, you have to have a lot of common sense and eye for detail,” said Adam Porth, Desmond’s father and the organizer of the chess club at Wood River High School, where he teaches science. He said practice and the ability to recognize patterns is more important than IQ. “The more games you play, the better chess player you can become.”
