It's Everywhere

You never know where you're going find chess blog related material. Consider this piece from ELLE girl magazine entitled "From Singapore With Love" (June/July pg. 102):
A pool shark and former chess champion pens our favorite blog this month. See the world from Angelique's perspective at

In high school, [Angelique] joined her chess club and rocked it. She wound up competing for Singapore in a tournament against Malaysia. Still, she insists she's not that good. "It was just a fun intellectual exercise," she says. "People pour money into coaches and training; it's a career for them. Chess is really frightening."
So I know what you're thinking ... "hey DG, how long have you been reading magazines for teenage girls and have you discussed this behavior with your therapist?"

Actually, things went down more like this ... "hey Dad, check out this article in my magazine. It's about blogging and chess. Maybe you can use it in your stupid chess blog."

Ah, the joys of parenthood...
