Coimbatore District Chess Tournament

     

 

The Coimbatore District Chess Tournament Hall was full of young talents of various ages sitting by their chess boards getting ready for the 5 round match. We came with our team of kids from MS and SS. Nine of our students went on to try and win some games while knowing that some of the opponents had tournament background, and had taken up chess almost professionally. After 5 rounds and not without some drama, Arjun B from VIII Standard got 7th place and a trophy; he made a great score of 4 wins out of 5, while Adhavan had a draw with a rated player in the last round, which got him 3.5 points, and he was almost in the prize list.
After the tournament was over, we sat in a close by Pizza Hut munching tasty delights and discussing the long day on the battle field of logic.
