I started learning chess from Pete Croce at the after-school program at Elysian Charter School when I was in kindergarten. It was a blast. I learned a lot of things. I learned how to concentrate, how to focus my mind and how to play chess, which I love. Because of Pete, I won my first tournament in second grade at the New Jersey State Chess Tournament. I won three games and came in third place and got a big trophy, and it was one of the happiest times for me, ever. Last year, in third grade, I won four games because Pete has been teaching me more things every day.

Pete's Hoboken Chess Club is a great place to learn chess. I've been going there ever since I started with Pete. There's a lot of nice kids in there, of all different ages. I hope more kids come to Pete's chess club, and I really wish chess was back in school. I can't wait for chess to start again. It makes me smarter and happier, and my parents are really glad that I enjoy it so much, too.
