 claudiainterview.gifThe #10 article in Best of CLO 2014 is “An Interview with the Ubiquitous Claudia Munoz" by Alan Rodenstein. Judges praised the topical subject matter, and insight into a young American star, also an efficient social media user.

“As I started doing research on the internet about chess in contemporary America, I noticed one individual seemed to be everywhere.  The individual was active with her website, ClaudiaMunoz.com, as an ambassador on chesskid.com (chess.com website for kids), on Twitter and on Facebook as well. “

Alan Rodenstein is a 40 year tournament player, currently researching a book on the state of chess in contemporary America.
Find another CLO piece by Rodenstein on Tactics Time author Tim Brennan, "the amateur who wrote a best-seller."

alan300.gifRodenstein summed up his feelings about the state of chess on his facebook page, "Contemporary American chess may be a lot of things, but it is not stagnant. Writing a book on it during the past few months has been an exciting challenge with all of the events and happenings. From the exciting Millionaire's Open to Fabiano Caruna's incredible run in St. Louis to the emerging new technology for chess viewership to the USCF/ICC partnership to the demise of the venerable New York Times Chess Column, we indeed live in interesting times!"
