Jan-23-14  epistle: <* They have 17 yr old only son who had no interest in chess. Think he's into Tae Kwondo >

Interesting to note that Glenn Bordonada's son also has no interest in chess and is deep into Judo.

Feb-07-14  kardopov: <epistle: <* They have 17 yr old only son who had no interest in chess. Think he's into Tae Kwondo > Interesting to note that Glenn Bordonada's son also has no interest in chess and is deep into Judo.> Then, I conclude that chess isn't genes related.
Feb-07-14  Fiona Macleod: A child does not inherit only the genes of the father. Maybe their mothers are into martial arts.
Feb-08-14  kardopov: <Fiona Macleod: A child does not inherit only the genes of the father. Maybe their mothers are into martial arts.>Maybe. But both Banjo and his wife are chess players. Maybe it's about the concern for future of their offspring that was taken into consideration. Even Eugene Torre's child did not become a chess player. Many chess players though did let their children follow their footsteps like the Badilles, Marianos and Nouri.
