SMCA Chess WORT (Weekly Online Rapid’s Tournament) – 7th Edition – 22nd October 2020
The 7th Edition of the SMCA Chess WORT (Weekly Online Rapids Tournament) had an amazing turnout with 53 students from our Regular Group Class batches participating. The tournament involves a duelling of the minds, just as arm wrestling is a duelling of strength. The competition, while challenging, allows for players to improve their game through practice and experience. About playing the tournament every week, first placed Shlok Mehendale from St Mary’s Academy, Meerut Cantt states, “It was excellent as always and also this time I had some tough competitors so it was challenging as well. I would like to thank Vakil Sir for teaching me & guiding me well.”
