An extra feature at our recent junior tournament was an open workshop run by my great friend and long-term supporter of chess on Teesside, Mr Nevil Chan.
Nevil very kindly spent the day demonstrating all sorts of strategies and tactics to anyone who wanted to improve their play.
The children visited the workshop after every tournament game and we are very keen to make this a permanent part of our future events.
Top solvers, earning a travel chess set, were:
Eden & Freya (Westgarth)
Lilaia & Joe (Hemlington)
Jasmine & Connor (Broadway)
Leia & Lili (Outwood)
Amelie, Natasha, Schlok & Edward (Yarm)
Thank you, Nevil! Your efforts are greatly appreciated, as always.
