US Chess wishes a Happy Father’s Day to chess parents and father figures!
A well known chessdad among our membership is commentator and IM David Pruess, who was interviewed at the PRO Chess League Finals in San Francisco a few months after the birth of his son.
And a Happy Father’s Day to FM Nathan Resika, who explained in his recent heartfelt essay, how health underscored the importance of family to him.
One disadvantage of aging is that you might have to deal with serious health issues more often. This happened to me and put me out of action for three months this year. This can give you a new outlook on life. I now treasure every day with my family and am just grateful to have good health. Singing and chess are just icing on the cake.
On twitter, several prominent chess fathers talked about their plans this Sunday.
