A note to parents

Rumor has it that some parents (no one's given me any names) want the PGN of their young stars' games embargoed until after the national championships.  Carlsen, Anand, and Aronian don't have this luxury!

Wouldn't it be better to publish the games, warts and all?  Then the young players can discover their opening errors, correct them, and prepare their repertoire in even greater depth?  This worked for Fischer.

Yes, of course it would. The NFL owns footage of NFL games, but last I checked no one has any claim over moves that happened in a chess game. If the game was played, everyone should be able to see it.
