Every kid got to play 4 matches. It is pretty nice how they set the games up for the kids to play - they get matched to their own ability levels. Kelsey did a super great job. We are so proud of her. We do have a few things to work on though - in all 4 of her matches she let her opponent get down to just their king, while she had a bunch of pieces left. She loves to kill and take their pieces so much that she forgets she is supposed to put their king in check-mate!! Well, I am sure she doesn't forget, she just gets wrapped up in the slaughter of knights and bishops and such I suppose!
This is funny, here she is in her final match, the one she tied on. It is a little dark, sorry. We have got to teach the girl how to sit in a skirt! I think she gets so nervous and wrapped up in the game, she doesn't realize what she is doing. I also caught her with hair in her mouth! Yuck! She only does that when she is super nervous!
Another 'sit in a skirt' lesson! Shortly after this both Kelsey and her opponent just stood up for the rest of the game. They were the second to last ones playing - drawing it out!
