“During the game, when Cathy began to move a pawn, Ted warned her softly, "Look at it, now. Look at it. Think about it.” It was a gentle warning that the move she was about to make would put her in some trouble.
Cathy withdrew her fingers from the pawn and looked up at him in wonderment. He merely grinned back at her. “Think about it now,” he encouraged. Ted made it clear she would have to think to contemplate each move until she understood what it might incur. Ted was an excellent chess coach.“
