Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

For all the school kids out there - the technical conference of the World Individual School Chess -2011 is set to take place in Krakow on Friday. The event begins on Saturday at the Szczepanski Square in Krakow. The opening ceremony will include a ballet-pantomime performance titled (what else) 'Chess' by Jan Kochanowski.

This is the seventh edition of the championship and includes age categories of under-7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17. The previous championship had 350 players from 30 countries. More than 400 kids are expected this time. We love to watch children play and look forward to all the sweet photos that come out from any such event. You can access the official website here.
