21.03.2019 17:15 A homeless 8-year-old, who learned to play a year ago, is now a New York chess champion
Against the odds, a young Nigerian immigrant proved that hard work pays off. Tanitoluwa (Tani) Adewumi, a third grader at P.S. 116 in New York, has won the New York State Scholastic Chess Championship in his age bracket. That's already an impressive feat in itself, but 8-year-old Tani only learned to play chess about a year ago. Tani and his family of four fled northern Nigeria in June 2017, worried about attacks by the extremist group Boko Haram, his dad Kayode Adewumi told CNN. The family stayed in a New York homeless shelter, where Tani kept the chess trophies he has racked up. Shawn Martinez, chess coach at P.S. 116, recruited Tani to join the chess program. "(Tani's) very tactical. His memory's great," Martinez told CNN's "New Day." But it's more than sheer talent that propelled Tani to victory. He puts in the time to hone his craft and practices chess ...

15.03.2019 16:56 Chess : England win first major medal in 22 years with silver at world teams
England’s silver medals on Thursday at the World Team Championship in Astana, Kazakhstan, were the team’s first of any colour in major competition since 1997. European gold in that year seemed the last hurrah of a generation which had proved itself No 2 to the former Soviet Union. Before that England won bronze at the 1989 world teams and the 1990 Chess Olympiad but then the Berlin Wall came down and new strong chess nations appeared from Eastern Europe and Asia. England proved themselves more consistent than their major rivals, China, India and the US, in Kazakhstan, although the margins were narrow. They were mentally tough, too, often fighting back strongly from dubious mid-session positions. The team captain, Malcolm Pein, said: “We showed in Astana that, although our teams do not receive the official and financial backing of ...
13.03.2019 16:49 Chess: England start well at World Team Championship and draw 2-2 with Russia
England made a fine start at this week’s World Team Championship in Astana, Kazakhstan, where they beat the host nation and Azerbaijan in the opening rounds, then drew with both the United States and, on Friday, the top-seeded Russians. These impressive results have put England in contention for silver or bronze medals before Saturday’s critical match with India. Yet it could have been even better. In Russia v England on Friday the tournament favourites showed their intent by resting their normal No 1 Sergey Karjakin in favour of the in-form Ian Nepomniachtchi on top board and the fast improving Vladislav Artemiev on board four. England countered in effect by the chess equivalent of parking the bus and aiming to draw every game. Despite having White, Gawain Jones chose a symmetrical opening against Artemiev and bailed out for ...
