Successful end of the year for our students!

iwica logoIt was an exciting end of the year full of chess tournaments and battles over the chessboard. Our students actively participated and achieved excellent results.


After Thailand’s Junior Championship in October, TCA organized Thailand’s National Championship on which the best Thai players took part. 12-years old Noppakorn Chen won amazing 111,6 rating points, which he earned by winning more experienced and far better rated opponents. Choochoo once again showed his great potential and talent and we all want to congratulate him on this achievement.

In December, IWICA U12 team joined St.Andrews Samakee Inter School Tournament organized by Gainsfield. The boys won all the matches and won the trophy, as well as 3 golden medals (Choochoo U12, Rowan U10 and Dhi U8) and one silver medal for 7-year old Tada who played on the third board for U10 players. The team showed great potential and we are right to expect great results from this group of kids, along with Chawit who couldn’t join this event.
