Round 4

The week started with the 4th round of FIDE World School Chess Championships and 2 parallel events. The President of the South Aegean Consumer Institute and Secretary General of the Panhellenic Institute, Mr. Giorgos Eugenikos, informed us about the rights and obligations of consumers.

After that, the psychologist and member of the Greek Women’s Chess and Equality Committee Hera Loutsiou analyzed the topic “Unlocking the psychology of children: Managing victory and defeat in chess”. Several parents and coaches attended and participated in the constructive dialogue.

After the 4th round, the rankings per category have been formed as follows:

U07: Elliot McCallum tied for 1st place with Amos Kapelinsky with 4 out of 4.
U09: Thetas Rithmitha Kiringoda tied for 1st place with Poyraz Efe Asici with 4 out of 4.
U11: Danis Kuandykuly and Vlad Petroff are tied for 1st place with 4 out of 4.

One wrong move can totally change the result. That is what happened in the match (U17) FM Andrei Filip – Zavaleta Fabian Ricardo Reyes. Watch the game here
Another typical example was the match (G17) between WFM Zeynep Ciftsi and WIM Kate Azumi Bravo Mallco, where the Peruvian International Meter – due to time pressure – did not measure the fork prepared by her opponent.

Evangelia Siskou with 4 out of 4 and first in her category (G13) while Grigoris Tamiolakis (U09), Filippos Oikonomopoulos (U11), Dimitris Papaioannou (U15) with 3.5 out of 4 and Spyros Hartofylakas (U15) and Katerina Argyro Goutzouki (U15) with 3 out of 4 remain undefeated.
