Here are some of the reasons why seniors should learn chess:
1) Chess keeps one’s mind sharp as it is mentally stimulating.
2) Chess helps relieves stress.
3) There is some research that shows chess lowers the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease.
We have a great senior class as part of our Winter Virtual Group Classes. In addition, we are currently facilitating a workshop for high school students and seniors in Westchester, in conjunction with DOROT USA. We also have a great seniors class, hosted by the Manhattan JCC.

I would like to increase my chess rating. On Chess.com my rating is around 1615. On Lichess my rating is around 1900 sometimes 2000 why is this? I could never figure that one out.
to get a fairly accurate rating you would have to play a number of rated games then average out the rating scores to get your true rating, this is because although the rules of chess play are quite simple, the interaction between pieces during play can affect ratings per game quite significantly, also the psychology of the players plays a part as either player could be operating at below optimum potential for a number of reasons during any given game scenario( reams cold be written about this).
