THE great chess champion Siegbert Tarrasch once said: “One doesn’t have to play well, it’s enough to play better than your opponent.”
And one of the things that a player can learn from chess is to be better and seek the truth every game like in life.

Martin and the Board of Directors announce the resumption of its maiden project the “AFPI Online Intermediate Chess Clinics” starting Saturday, Sept. 19 with morning and afternoon sessions.
A mini-tournament will follow on Sept. 20 from 8 a.m.to 9:30 a.m.
