Isaac Martinez Interview

Today’s podcast features Isaac Martinez.

Isaac Martinez as one of the chess playing Monks at the Renaissance Festival. Richard "Buck" Buchanan is in the background.

Isaac is 14 years old, and the son of active chess player Anthea Carson.  Isaac attended his first tournament at age 2 days old!  Isaac has made a lot of rapid improvement in his game, gaining hundreds of points the past several years.

  • Growing up with a Strong Chess Mom

  • Recent simul games against GM Fishbein and GM Kudrin
  • Working with Chess Teachers Lee Simmons and Paul Covington.
  • Isaac’s advice for chess improvement
