Noam decided he wanted to spend the day studying chess today. So we started with a couple of games, both of which I managed to win. Then we started going through his green chess book and learned about how to win or draw with two kings and a pawn. Noam's new chess teacher, Sasha arrived at 10:30 and they played a couple of games too, first with Noam as white then as black. After Sasha gave Noam some chess problems to see how he would do. Sasha seemed impressed by Noam's abilities and is going to come every Thursday at 10:30. His home work this week is to play chess games of 15 minutes length on chess.com so that he and Sasha can go over them when he returns on Thursday.
