Chess tournament dates confirmed
LOCAL strategic board tacticians will be nestling at home calculating various angles of attack to implement when competing in the upcoming chess tournaments.
Their aim will be to make the King Cetshwayo District team to compete at the South African Junior Chess Championships in Boksburg from 16 to 24 December.
There have been two tournaments thus far which have seen these masterminds executing their battle plans, but with nationals at stake, one needs to make sure that all skills and strategies are completely polished to win on the grand stage.
One major part of competing at these tournaments is the ability to maintain concentration and focus for hours without getting fatigued.
These players not only practice their playing skills, but also complete a series of mental exercises which improve and prolong concentration.
Remaining tournaments at Richards Bay High School
19-20 May - King Cetshwayo Championship. 28-29 July - King Cetshwayo Fun and Money.
25-26 August - King Cetshwayo Closed Tournament.
1-2 December - King Cetshwayo Christmas Rapid Tournament.
