On Saturday 15th October 25 chess players from Orange Walk along with Mr. Eric Cal and Mr. Abdias De Paz met at the sports complex for a day of training. The training was conducted by Mr. David Coombs and Mr. Jose Teul of the BNYCF.
At the start of the day we worked on some of the training exercises recommended by Grandmaster Maurice Ashley, we then practiced some end game methods, did some brainteasers and finally some whole games.
Orange Walk certainly have some talented players and we encourage them to keep on practicing and we are looking forward to seeing some of them on the 29th October in Belmopan.
As usual with young chess players, they are all enthusiastic, show great sportsmanship and are keen to learn more and challenge the best player.
On behalf of all the players and the BNYCF we would like to thank Mr. Eric Cal for his work and time in organising this training event, also thanks to other teachers and parents for supporting chess as a positive activity for young people.
