10 years ago, on May 21, 2011, the first tournament of the game chesbol that appeared in Kazan took place, reports IA “Tatar-inform”.
The tournament was organized in the branch of the Kazan Federal University, which was then operating in Zelenodolsk. And on May 21, 2021, a Sports Festival was held at the Kazan Suvorov Military School, dedicated to the end of the academic year. The program included over 10 kinds of sports, including chesbol. The chesball tournament took place on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the first tournament.
Unusual chess captivated the Suvorovites and the leadership, since it is important in it to be able to think strategically, to take responsibility for oneself, to work in a team, to make decisions in conditions of a lack of information.
The judge of the tournament Damir Ayupov stressed that everyone liked the unusual and very dynamic game. Chessball also aroused great interest among parents and Suvorovites: everyone surrounded the chess court in accordance with all the rules of military tactics. Suvorovs from all companies took part in the competition, 4 games were played, one ended in a draw.
The high level of organization and discipline of the Suvorovites was noted, who quickly mastered the rules of the game. For example, the teams did not forget to take time-outs at crucial moments, and the captains took over the game in the moments of the team’s “hanging”. The holiday was held in a friendly atmosphere and in a fair fight, the Suvorovites liked the chesball, who expressed their desire to assemble a national team for external competitions.
