Summer Chess Camp week 3

Swiss Cottage

by coach Nima

This week’s camp was a small group of fantastic kids. We had a lot of fun learning new types of chess games such as “king of the hill”. The weather also treated us well, meaning we could play lots of outdoor games. A great week all around.

The girl who won the medal for “most improved” has gotten so much better since the last time we saw her and she came joint third in the week.

Elai traded wins with his brother Gil all week before he ended up coming out on top. Well done to all!

This week it was especially gratifying to take account of the progress of beginners who, two weeks ago, were only learning to move the chess pieces, now Shay and a few others are able to beat players much older than themselves. Special mention also goes to Elai and Gil, brothers who were neck and neck for first place, the former eventually taking the trophy.
