            Feb 10, 2019

Last Sunday, 10th of February, in one of the numerous events organized by The Chess Academy to help our players practice and improve their chess while having fun. We had the opportunity to play a friendly but competitive match against one of the best teams in Spain, Universidad de Santiago de Compostela (USC). Given the time difference the matches were set to start at 5pm Hong Kong time (10am for our opponents).
The players were all very excited and eager to try some of the new strategies they had been studying in their chess lessons. Before the match started both teams spoke for a couple of minutes – introducing themselves and wishing each other good luck.

Everything was set for the match to start. There were 6 players per team and each player played 2 games against the same opponent, one with white pieces and the other one with black. At the end of all the games the team with more points would be declared the winner.

We are delightful to the overall success of the event, everyone could go home happy knowing that they learnt some valuable lessons and got to play some fun and exciting chess matches against tough competition. The Chess Academy will have plenty more chess events for Hong Kong players in the near future.
