    Reading about chess makes it difficult to understand. Join a club or play online would be my advice.

    It's an ongoing joke with my friends that 'I'm so posh' because I played in the Hampshire U14 Chess Team...

    Not posh, a little geeky maybe...

    Kids pick it up quickly enough- you only start reading about it when you record games - then it starts to be useful.
