Back to School with Benko

With the new school year starting, chess clubs and scholastics resume. Some countries, such as Armenia, have made chess a mandatory part of the curriculum. I certainly agree that chess helps logical thinking, problem solving and foresight. Beyond that, chess problems add artistic elements.
