Chess Youth Training Started

June 7th, 2012

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.
