In Episode 246, I converse with Fabio Botarelli, Founder & President Of Chessability NYC. I have known Fabio most of my life as we were both members of Woman International Master Shernaz Kennedy's Churchill School chess team. He has always been a great friend, teammate and amiable competitor.
Chessability NYC specialises in special education schools, including The Parkside School, the Windward School and Aaron School.
We speak about chess versus checkers, overcoming learning disabilities, impulse control, handling defeat, teamwork, the art of learning, improvement tips, puzzles, opening repertoire, confidence, influence of the Queen's Gambit, encouragement to go out and play and more.
