Invitational Primary Schools Chess Championship 2012

LZ was excited about this event, more so for L coz it's her FIRST time representing school.   I know the chances of them winning for the school is not high coz LZ are still new.  Nevertheless, as usual, I encouraged them to do their best.
 Briefing before the start of the event
 1st round, L getting a little nervous.
 1st round,  Z can't wait for it to start...
 Finally she broke the 'egg' (0 point) after losing 2 rounds and she won a rated player! 
 His opponent happened to be one of his chess club friends.
 Played against her buddy, Rachel, in round 4.  
 Z was very eager to play this round (6th rd).  Facing his opponent, who is his chess buddy.  
Lastly, a pic of the siblings representing school together for the first time.

There were 165 students from 50 primary schools (including 9 international schools) & 9 kindergartens that took part.  L was in the U11 category and Z in the U9 category.

Looking at all the regular players from the primary schools, I knew it wasn't going to be easy for my kids.  But I'm so proud of my kids!   They did pretty well for this competition!  They did not win anything but what matter most (again) they enjoyed it.   The feeling is different this time coz they were so proud to represent school!  It is a very special event to me as well coz I helped recording the scores for the U11 team and presented prizes to the winning teams as well!  Wow!  Lots of FIRSTs for us today!  Haha.... 

I am very happy for my kiddos!  They both beat rated players today!  They didn't start well, losing first 2 rounds, but they won some of the rounds after that. Well done my babies!
