I have nowhere else to share these... My DS's chess pictures

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

If yall don't like this you can move it- I had no other ideas on where to share. DS, age 4, is obsessed with chess. He just started learning over the summer and has now played about 350 games both in person and online live. He's had two tournaments so far and won trophys in each and is planning on several more in the Spring. Anyway, my DH took these photos of Tor in our home studio this week. He was excited!

Your husband is an excellent photographer.  You have a few talented people in your household.  I really love how your DH captured your son's intensity.

Wow-- your son knows how to plat chess at 4 years old- and has won competitions?? Wow. I can't do that. By the way, I LOVE the pictures too! :)

Thanks everyone!

 

Yes he won 2nd place in October in his first USCF tournament, a local one; he was the youngest player by at least 2 years. Then he won 1st place last month in the unrated Kindergarten category of the US Scholastic Nationals tournament. He wants to do a few more semi-local ones then the Nationals again in the Spring.

What great pictures. He looks adorable. The second pic makes him look like some adorable evil genius movie villain or something.

Agree. Beautiful photos. Your son has an air of sweetness and confidence at the same time. It's wonderful.
