This week I spoke with my friend Jay Kleinman, a fellow chess amateur and social worker in NY. Jay recounted some fascinating experiences from the amateur tournament scene, and an overriding theme in our conversation was how becoming a parent changes the narrative of adult improvement. Some of our talking point include:

  • The unfortunate decline of OTB post-mortem analysis
  • The dangers of mimicking super-GMs
  • How Jay almost gave a lesson to the late William Lombardy (Fischer's coach)
  • Jay's encounters with some now-famous GMs ("I knew them when...")
  • Chess improvement beyond parenting
  • Opening choices
