I am teaching DD3 how to play chess.
We played a gentle game yesterday, just to show her how to set up the board and how the pieces move.
We played a lengthy game this morning, with lots of explanation about what I was doing and why I was doing it, along with outlining the consequences of what would happen if she moved her pieces in various positions.
We have just finished a third game, and I was so busy telling her about how I kept putting her in check, that I completely failed to realise that I was in a vulnerable position and she whupped me !! She captured my king in one board-long move that I didn't think she would work out how to do !
I am so proud of her :-)
And laughing at my own pride, which blinded me ........
Moral : never under-estimate a ten year old !
