The Next American GM?

Angus Dwyer writes about his experiences playing chess against his 5-year old nephew. Based on his comments, it would seem that he agrees with my "beat them while their young" theory (that's beat them at chess ... we don't condone corporal punishment at the BCF):
I found in the endgame my biggest challenge was trying to be more entertaining than the Blue Power Ranger. No easy task.

I estimate that at this rate he'll be able to beat me consistently by the time he's eleven or so.

Well, it'll be a fun six years.
Angus is a Yankees fan, but since he is also a chess player we'll forgive him.
