While the kids at Greenbriar West are chess superstars now, it wasn’t too long ago that they didn’t know how to play the game. So if you’re interested in learning to play, you might want to check out www.chesskid.com. It has puzzles, video lessons and online games. A parent or guardian must set up an account for children age 12 and younger.
