Playing a Grandmaster!

Elf and Emperor recently had an opportunity to listen to a lecture and play Grandmaster Akobian at the Kansas City Chess Club. Thanks to Tradebot Systems, Inc. for sponsoring this! GM Akobian put on an excellent presentation, and all the children were very attentive. And thanks to my friend Maria for sending me this picture and giving me permission to use it on the blog. :) Patrick came along as well and was glad he went. He just doesn't want his pic on the blog. Meh.


  1. That's pretty impressive and must have been a great experience! I am sure that the kids would all pound poor Grandpa at the game now ....

  2. Wow that is awesome! I can't believe how big the boys are getting.

  3. Grandpa, the kids still ARE 9 and 11. You might be able to hold out for a draw. :)

    I know, Bonnie. And I was looking at your Fourth of July pics and going, how twisted is that that these kids will think of it as a WINTER holiday lol??

  4. Wow! That's amazing! I love how much he is into chess. Chaz would love for someone to play with him.
