KD's Chess Workout




Kurt has been a great chess enthusiast and his overwhelming fondness with the sport encouraged him to join a 3-day training from October 27-29 at LICS' (La Immaculada Concepcion School) chess room. It was also their one week school break in commemoration with "All Saint's Day" or "Halloween" as popularly known.

I fetched him to and from school as he personally requested so the school service was not necessary and it's a perfect bonding moment for Mye and KD.

The training took 4 hours a day from 12nn to 4pm. For three days, he wanted only "Dunkin Donuts" for snack; 2 Choco Sprinkle donuts, Choco Icy Cooler on the first day, Grape on the second day and Iced Coffee on the third day. I just watched him satisfy his hunger after few hours of mind-boggling checkerboard game. The game I never learn to play.

He got 1 win, 1 loss and 1 draw. Now, he's ready to fight for opponents willing to checkmate his King and who else is willing but his Papa whom he almost defeated. The game was a draw.
