Dear Friends!

On September 2nd, our Children’s Club hosted a simultaneous chess session. The youngest participant was seven years old, while the oldest was seventeen. And it must be said that nobody was bored.

The little rascals, while waiting for the older kids to finish their games, were drawing with chalk on the tiles. This has become a nice tradition: the chalk appears as soon as the children arrive. By the way, the adults, as it turned out, were not averse to reliving their childhood. You won’t believe it, but the moms even remembered how to play hopscotch.

But we got a little distracted.

The simultaneous game session was conducted by Beksoltan Masgutov. Here’s what he said after the event:

“I want to thank the Russian House for organizing a fantastic game. The session went great, despite the different levels of play among the kids. It was pleasing to see that all young chess players approached the game like adults, fought to the end, and accepted defeat gracefully.”

After the game, Beksoltan showed his opponent where their mistake was and how they could have won.

Some children, after finishing their game with Beksoltan, took boards, sat in free spaces, and played among themselves.

Dads didn’t stay on the sidelines either. They had their own tournament. They decided not to announce the results.

Thanks to our Zina for the sweet table and the compote that everyone loves without exception.

Beksoltan shook hands with each opponent, thanked them for the excellent game, and wished them success in the future.

As our little participants and their parents said goodbye, they asked, “Will there be a chess school?”

Yes, dear friends! The chess school is open. Classes are held on Tuesdays at 5 p.m. Sign up for four lessons at once! The first lesson has already taken place.

You should have seen the excitement in the eyes of the boys and the only girl, who was also the youngest. After the lesson, they gathered around Beksoltan. The stream of questions never seemed to end, as if they wanted to master the art of chess in one go.

Now it’s your turn.
