Week Two of the Belmayne Breaktime Chess Tournament kicked off and it did not
The first game was Miguel vs Victor and it was an intense game to say the least, both
players constantly putting each other in check. Miguel played the one chess move that
Netflix lovers know so well, that’s right he played The Queen’s Gambit. This magnificent
move gave Miguel The Crown (another one for the Netflix lovers).
Meanwhile, on the other side of the room, a match between Páidí and Rowan had just gotten
underway. Páidí worked hard for this as Rowan tried to keep him at bay but sadly for Rowan
it came to a close when Páidí locked him in a checkmate!
Whilst all this drama was unfolding, a game was also in play between Nine and Morgana.
Nine kicked off the game with a Pawn to E4 move, otherwise known as The King’s Pawn
Strategy. This is the second most popular move, just behind The Queen’s Pawn Strategy.
However, there was no winner as the bell rang, rematch perhaps?
That’s all for this week’s Belmayne Breaktime Chess Tournament. Come back next Thursday
for more of the tournament.
