Chess Puzzles

Event Description

Second, third, fourth and fifth grade contestants in a chess puzzle contest receive a paper-and-pencil test that includes a series of chess boards with pieces in particular positions. Questions are based on analysis of material or possible moves in each given diagram. After practicing for ten weeks, three students and one additional alternate from each grade level will be chosen to represent Deep Wood at our Learning Community Meet.
