Chess tournament at Kalinka is a priceless experience for every participant
On Saturday, March 3, a chess tournament was held at the Kalinka Russian School. The competitors were divided into three groups according to their age: the group of children aged 8 years and younger, the group of 9-11 year olds and the group of children aged 12 years and older. Before the tournament started, the arbiters had decided to hold it in circular system in which each participant had the opportunity to play with each during the tournament or round.
