Chess school with Judit Polgár
Chess - thirty-two chess pieces on a chessboard with sixty-four squares, the possible positions are of 84 digits. However, playing chess is far beyond merely playing. It rather feels like getting lost in the world of combinatory, logic and calculations, discovering harmony in mathematical calculations, and sharpening our minds.
Chess means fun for the youngest as well. Moreover, by playing chess, they can develop skills that are going to be essential for them in all domains of life.
The best example for that is pre-school aged Kata Karácsony, who is going to play simultaneous chess on a chessboard with 16 squares with her younger and older challengers at 5.30 pm. Afterwards, Judit Polgár – the best female player in the history of chess- is going to speak about the advantages to include playing chess into the curriculum, what are the underlying possibilities of and what kind of skills can be acquired by learning to play chess. Later she will be joined by Zsuzsa Duró, child psychologist, Tamás Nádas, dedicated supporter of chess and Máriusz Révész, chairman of Budapest Chess Federation to discuss all the possibilities and potentials.
As closure of the day, the movie called ‘Chess fever’ will be screened from 8.30 pm.
