My 7-Year-Old Chess Champion

December 15th, 2009 (08:45 pm)

current mood: cheerful

The Chess Club at my son's school has been holding a tournament. As of last week, two finalists remained: a fifth-grader and my little boy, who's in the second grade. The rules said the two finalists would play for the best two games out of three. Last week, each boy won a game. Today was to be their final match-up.

When I picked him up this afternoon, he was ecstatic. He had beaten his fifth-grade opponent to win the tournament. His prize: he got to play a game against the school principal. He won that one too.

I have no idea if the principal let him win, but I'm guessing no.

That was the prize? Seriously? Boo!
