Chess is strategy; Of course it’s war. But it’s also a game of Kings. A game of Royalty. The history of chess is the history of prodigies. It stood same even for the Inter University Championship 2018.
The Chess Tournament of the Inter University Championship 2018 for both Men and Women categories were held on 27th , 28th and 29th July, at the University of Jaffna. Students representing every university participated in the tournament with kindled hope of bringing the Chess Championship to their university.
Tournament were filled with students clustered over chessboards, debating tactics. All of them driven with one ambition, mind fixed on a single purpose, to win the Championship and be the Kings of Game of Kings.
Practicing and playing hundreds of games, studying them, reviewing moves to see where a
tactic was missed, where a wrong move was anticipated, where one could have pressed for
better advantage. It was the time to check their ability to checkmate with a bishop and a knight.
