On the first chess meeting we welcomed Jonathan, Bryant, Wilson, Jay, Miguel Angel and Mei Jing as our first six youth members.
Starting off with some causal chess and walking through the basic rules, we later practiced 10 minutes per person chess with all players playing twice against one another.
After this we played some simultaneous chess and did some puzzles.
Next week’s schedule is as follows:
- 6pm-6.30pm: group 1 (Miguel Angel, Wilson and Bryant): the pin; group 2 (Mei Jing, Jonathan and Jay): concepts of the opening.
- 6.30pm-7.30pm: first competition of 2 games in each group (writing down the moves).
- 7.30pm-8pm: optional time for casual chess with choices between blitz chess, simultaneous chess or transfer chess, or preparing to go home.
