THOUGHT CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS

The success of every human endeavour is the result of thinking…

We have found that the game of chess has many benefits and is an ideal spring board towards thinking because

  • it can improve analytical thinking skills
  • it can strengthen attention span
  • it can help focus
  • the competitive element is an enormous bonus to children’s interest
  • it can be played well by children as young as five
  • it is truly international, and breaks down barriers of age, sex and race.
  • it has sufficient depth to reward the deepest study while, at the same time, can become an agreeable pastime for all the family

2013-2014 season on the way…

Ealing Junior Chess Club entered 3 teams in three Divisions of the Thames Valley league.

All 3 teams started the season with losses against experienced Ealing Senior teams: in Div 4 our “C” team lost 0.5 vs 5.5 against Ealing Senior D. Newly promoted into Div 2 our “A” team went down to Ealing Senior “B” with score 2 vs 5, and in Div 3 our “B” team lost 1st home game to Ealing Senior C 1 vs 5.

When Ealing Senior B visited our “A” team shown good fighting spirit and 3.5 vs 2.5 with one unfinished game, where our player has very good winning chance with guaranteed draw result! That will secure 1st win in Div 2.

Our “B” team after losing home game against solid Ealing Senior C, whom our “A” team lost in both matches in last season before promoting into Div 2, needed to preform well. When we visited our seniors we had 10+ grading point advantage on top 3 boards and on board 2 Haotian won after 11 moves, board 3 George’s opponent resigned after 18 moves! Board 4 Anna’s solid draw, board 6 Elizabeth’s win followed nice debut win for Alfie on 5. Last game captain Timothy won in style on board 1. Final score was 0.5 vs 5.5 !
