Congrats to your son for his Master title!

My father & uncles were just amateur players (only played against each other), so thatís why DH says itís just a parlour trick (DH has played quite successfully against a number of IMs & GMs online). DH & DS do have very good visuospatial skills and theyíve honed it in other areas (MRI, speedcubing, Olympiad level geometry).
