Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO SPORT - Richard Springo­rum

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.
