Choosing the Chess Champion

On Tuesday we had a chess tournament among the children of sktkj. It was to choose among the best 12 who will represent the school for the district level. Students played 5 games. They were ranked based on the result that they get. If the win, they would move to the upper level, meeting another winner. If they lose, they would go down. So, their position would be known when they played all the five games (it should be 6 though)

Top player for the male was a small standard 6 boy, we knew him as he played for the school last year. Another one was the standard 5 student, a bit taller than the other one. He also played for the school last year. The top female player was a tiny little girl, who is just a standard 4 student! She was able to beat all other competitors including the year 6 students from the top class. She was the only girl that win all the five games. Amazing.

chess.. when size of the brain doesn’t matter. Samuel Reshevsky, defeating a series of adult opponents, at 8. The info was taken from (here)

The most interesting finding was that a small boy from the last class in standard 5 (the sixth class) was able to get through in the selection. He only lost once, to the top standard 6 boy. Perhaps he is the Einstein in the making. huhuhu.. A little bit of exposure from Mr. Faiz will make him invincible.. huhuhu

I strongly believe that the boy is genius. Perhaps the way the lesson that was conducted in class doesn’t profit him. Something should be done here. Any genius suggestion to help him?
