Day 2: Transfer Chess Competition! The teams were based from the results of Day 1. The player that finished first was paired with the player that came last – 2nd place with 2nd last –fair teams. Vice versa. Prize for the best team name went to "Eviel Chess Players" as one of the girls in the team was named "Evie"...super creative. The overall winning team scored a movie pass each!! Well done to all the participants.

Day 3: Lightning Chess or “Speed Chess” as most say. 11 epic rounds of fun. The speed also made its way on to the soccer field during free time. All of the kids got involved and many new friendships were forged on and off the field. Great job to all of the players!

Day 4: Play predict a move! Fun, interactive and educational lessons kept all of the children on the edge of their seat and focused. Students had to guess/predict the moves of World Chess Champions. Answers were annotated and a point was given for each correct move. It was an exciting chess activity for the kids along with plenty of prizes. The certificates were well deserved by all of our clever players. Proud moment for the kids and Topchess. We also played a 10 minute a side tournament for bonus rating points!!

As a result, Syed-Musa Jaffrey won the raffle drawn at the end of the week. Congratulations! During the day was fun chess and a 10 minute a side tournament. We even managed another predict a move competition! We analysed the famous match between Leopoldo Carranza vs Alexander Alekhine. Alekhine was a renowned Russian and French player that even has a chess opening named after him – Alekhine’s Defence.
