Zhung delivers at High School Finals

Muffles College High School's Zhung Ko and Yemin Tillet will represent Belize for a chess bout at Guatemala after placing first and third respectively at the Belize High School Chess finals held at the Belize City Civic Center on Saturday June 30th. Over 100 games where played and more than 20 participants represented their high schools and districts. The tournament was based on a 5 round Swiss system that lasted over 5 hours. Chess clocks were used to time the games with 30 minutes alloted to each player at the start of each game. At the end, the top 5 males and 5 females were chosen to represent the country in Guatemala. Zhung Ko (top) from Muffles College emerged with 5 victories being the strongest player in the tournament. Yemin Tillet, another Muffles College participant was third strongest in the tournament winning 4 and losing 1 to Ko. May I say that our efforts have been successful and our hours of hard work paid off well. Pictures can be found here.
