Guess what?

He is rated 1133 (based on 6 games).

As usual, his school has a loose idea of what constitutes a chess
master.

Not surprising at all. A real chess master would have gone for an 11 year
old, not a 14 year old.

The article actually describes him as a "master chess teacher."
Perhaps they meant something like "certified chess instructor," which
one can be without playing at anything near master strength. In any
event, it seems a poor choice of words by the reporter.
Speaking of this sort of thing, have there been any recent
developments in the Snyder case?

He's out on bail so he can molest other boys.

This 1100-rated player possesses the same level of expertise as most
"master" teachers in this country hold in their subjects. In other words,
none.

Default Robert Snyder molested young boys

Former chess instructor bound over for trial
By SARA REED

A District Court judge has found there is enough evidence to send the
case against a well-known Fort Collins author and chess coach accused
of assaulting three of his students to trial.

Robert Snyder, 51, now faces four counts of sexual assault on a child
by a person in a position of trust plus two sentence-enhancing counts
of sexual assault on a child ? pattern of abuse, all of which were
bound over for trial today by Judge David Williams.

Snyder has not entered a plea yet and a trial date has not been set.

The incidents, which police say go back to late 2002, are alleged to
have occurred in Snyder?s home, 2619 Silver Creek Drive. Snyder is
accused of inappropriately touching the boys and forcing two of them to
touch him, according to testimony heard during this morning?s hearing.

Chess master to stand trial
By Sarah Langbein, Rocky Mountain News
February 6, 2006

FORT COLLINS ? A nationally-known chess master will stand trial on
charges of child molestation, including one involving his stepson, a
judge ruled today.

Robert M. Snyder was in court in Fort Collins this morning for a
preliminary hearing during which a police officer detailed the
accusations made by three of his chess students. The officer said all
three were under the age of 15 at the time of the alleged incidents.

Snyder is charged with four counts of sexual assault on a child by a
person in a position of trust.

Were they circumcised? I hope Snyder did not violate any religious laws by
eating trafe.

I also just noticed this one, its a few weeks old but seems to have
a lot of new details:

I not usually one to support these every increasing sentences I think
Government needs to spend less time making new laws and just enforce
the ones we have but if he's guilty I hope he gets a long, long time behind
bars.
