11 movies and documentaries for chess lovers

Ajedrez Peli

16 pieces per player and a Board of 64 squares. That is all that is needed to play chess, one of the most historical board games and that even it is considered a sport. Whether you’re an expert and if you’re a simple novice, then we offer you a collection of HD movies and documentaries on Movie2k  related to this chess scene. From stories of great chess players, to chess players that developed their skills through the cold war. Movie 2k really offers all of the great chess movies that you can watch series online for free. Also enjoy timeless classics of how chess clubs helped schools in slum areas to offer hope to its students. 

Brooklyn Castle (documentary, 2012)

“Imagine a school where most popular children belong… to the chess team”. Fiction? No: it is real a small Institute of Brooklyn history. Most of its students live under the poverty line and chess is for them an escape route. During the last years national champions were proclaimed again and again, and in fact, this Institute is right won championships throughout its history.

The documentary focuses on the history of five of his students a year, showing not only how your school chess program has been hampered by numerous budget cuts, but also own difficulties and personal challenges that these guys have to overcome every day. It was very welcome among criticism after being screened at various festivals, which has served it so Sony should be set in the story and it acquired the rights to make a film.

Bobby Fischer Against the World (documentary, 2011)

Another documentary, although in this case on one of the players most popular history that not only features interviews of many of his colleagues, but it also shows for the first time material never before seen in the World Chess Championship in 1972, which was decided with what was then known as theGame of the century between Fischer and his Russian nemesis Boris Spassky. “One of the most beautiful films ever shot on the chess“, says Federico Marín Bellón.

Pawn Sacrifice (film, 2015)

If you stay with the desire to know more about Bobby Fischer and its history, the film ‘Pawn Sacrifice’ focuses precisely on his life and how, unwittingly, was trapped in the cold war between the two great superpowers of the time. Tobey Maguire gives life to the protagonist, while Liev Schreiber has been chosen to play Boris Spassky. Although he was in some festivals in 2014, it is not intended that debuts in the United States until September of this year. In Spain we are still waiting…

Searching for Bobby Fischer (film, 1993)

Although it bears the name of Bobby Fischer in the title, has nothing to do with the famous chess player (indeed, reportedly that it complained that he used his name without permission). Instead, ‘in search of Bobby Fischer’ tells the story of Joshua Waitzkin, a child prodigy that existed (and there is) in reality. His father wrote a book about the chess world, which is that the film is based. And Darling because, if you’re a fan of this discipline, you’ll find some cameo’s popular masters along the tape.

Your argument? Basically the life of Waitzkin when his family discovered that he had a gift for chess and they hire a teacher to teach you to take advantage of their abilities to become the next world champion. Throughout the game are various items that have been analyzed retrospectively by other players. However, some criticize various important bugs that it has and that may go unnoticed to the untrained eye.

Computer Chess (film, 2013)

A strange comedy, shot in black and white to give more authenticity (no, is not a documentary but you want to look like it). It is set in the ‘ 80s, when players began to play against some computers. Its director confesses in an interview that only had a script of the eight-page draft and that most of the dialogue is improvised, so that you can imagine improvisation that is present at all times in the final result.

As a result, and also of a specific theme, the reviews have been quite disparate: some criticize it and much while other consider that it is one of the best comedies of recent times. It is likely that you like if you’re a big fan of chess or computers (preferably to both), but if it cannot be quite heavy and boring.

The Dark Horse (film, 2014)

Project with origin in New Zealand as it swept away all the national awards (and any that took another international) in 2014. History, even though it is told in the form of film, is inspired by the life and work of Genesis Potini, a popular chess player with bipolar disorder who was trying to teach the young underprivileged community to play chess to prevent them from becoming criminals.

Game Over: Kasparov and the Machine (documentary, 2003)

For those who do not understand they much chess, there is a moment of the last few years with which we are very familiar: “combat” between Kasparov and Deep Blue. In 1996, this machine designed by IBM was faced for the first time against Garry Kasparov, one of the best players in history. He won any game, although Kasparov emerged victorious in the series. Things changed in 1997, with Deep Blue crowned as the first machine that won a World Chess Champion.

However, Kasparov was not at all happy with the result and came to insinuate that the movements of Deep Blue had a touch of creativity, something impossible for a machine with artificial intelligence and that only could be explained with the intervention of a human. The HBO documentary becomes echo these accusations and discusses the controversy that IBM people emerged then, with interviews with the own Kasparov, and other experts.

Long Live the Queen (child film, 1995)

An Oscar will not win because it doesn’t nothing otherworldly, but this Dutch film of 1995 may be agood way to start in chess to children of the House. It tells the story of a girl with a big imagination who misses his father, a chess champion who has just seen. Decides to learn how to play but does so in a peculiar way: through a story and parts enchanted with them that they can talk.

Geri completo Game (short, 1997)

It was not the first Pixar short (that position is it ‘Luxo Jr.’, 1986), but yes it’s one of the most popular short films of the history of the animation Studio. However, if that it pioneered in something: was the first time that Pixar showed a human being in a short.

‘Geri completo Game’ is an old man playing against himself in a game of chess that develops in a park. It was shown in some cinemas in 1997, although its success came in 1998 after being included on the VHS and the DVD of ‘Bugs’. So much so was its impact that the short film took the Oscar for best animated short, among other many international accolades.

Chess Fever (film, 1925)

A silent and black and white film recorded in the Russia of the year 1925 which is defined as “a story of love, obsession… and chess!”. Although the style you do not call too much, you will look pretty curious because they use some real footage during the annual tournament that year. José Raúl Capablanca, Cuban chess player, gives life to the protagonist, while also leave themselves to see, among others, Frank Marshall, Rudolf Spielmann, Carlos Torre and Frederick Yates.

The diagonal of the madman (film, 1984)

Coproduction Franco-Swiss, which in 1984 was nominated for several international awards, including the Oscar for best film from non-English speaking and Golden Globe to best foreign film, but did not take any of the awards. The story takes place in 1983, during the celebration of a prestigious Chess Championship that also staged the political tensions that existed at that time. In fact, and although the title distracted, are facing a new mistranslation in his arrival in Spain (‘La Diagonale du Fou’, in the original French, it should be ‘The diagonal of the Bishop’ in Castilian, but “fou” also means “crazy”).

Although it is a fictional film, it has several Parallels with some events on chess that occurred in reality, as it explains the criticism of Beatlespock in Filmaffinity:

The film makes numerous allusions to actual chess events: the Match of the century between Spassky and Fischer in 1972 in Reykyavik and 1978 between Anatoli Karpov and Viktor Kortchnoi World Championship of chess. Pavius Fromm (Alexandre Arbatt) is a kind of mixture of the great Bobby Fischer and Korchnoi, a Swiss born Russian; and Liebskind (Michel Piccoli) and his cohort of teachers represents probably the purest Soviet faction that manipulates at will its most capable citizens for Communist supremacy. Recall the role of Karpov against Kasparov in his unforgettable duels of the 80s, stagnation against perestroika. (Beatlespock criticism at Filmaffinity).

Rules of chess about mortgage change of Dead parts

The change law of  mortgage agent 

Pedestrians are often treated as a defensive replacement, used agages sacrifices to avoid losing more “important” pieces on the Board. But when a player uses a pawn for the Exchange, pedestrians suddenly becomes much more powerful. To ready currency with another piece, the player must move to the last row on the Board. For the white pieces, the objective is to reach rank 8. The black pawns are struggling to rank 1. Once a pawn reaches the last row in the table, it can be changed by another piece. Besides being known as a”pawn”, this move is also called as “pawn of conversion”, “promotion” or “grade”.

Interchangeable parts

Pedestrians is often confused with the Queens when they promote, but the players are not limited to this single option. A pedestrian graduated can be changed by a horse, Bishop, Tower, or the Queen of the same color. A player is not required to change its promise for a piece that lost. For example, if the player still has his Queen intact, but you want to change a pawn promoted to a Queen this is perfectly acceptable.

When Convert

Change a pawn for a “dead” or captured chess piece is an important strategy, and its usage in the game could be crucial. In general, players use the pedestrian Exchange only towards the end of the game, in part because several steps are needed to advance a pawn from all the way across the Board.Start pawns are hoping to convert its target during the mid-play of the game, once the opening volleys were fired in movement. It is often better to support the potential conversion of pawns with a Bishop or rook. It’s typically prudent groped to send four of their eight pawns toward the end of the table. Of them, with enough skill and strategy, chances are that you will be able to change one or two.

Exchange rules

Chess notes no limit when it comes to an exchange of tokens. In theory, a player can move all of your chips and makes them more powerful, although this is an unlikely outcome. Only pedestrians can be changed on the other hand, conversion does not apply to any other piece on the Board. Pawns can become any other piece in the game, save the King.

How to be a better chess player

Anyone can try their luck in a game of chess, but it takes a little more effort to be a good chess player. Keep reading to learn how to develop your chess skills.


Method 1 of 2: convert you into a better player of chess

  1. Become a Better Chess Player Step 1.jpg
    Learn to play chess. Not is possible improve if not know the rules or how move a piece correctly.


  2. Become a Better Chess Player Step 2.jpg
    Join you to a club of chess local. I know social and free with the chess. No trates of feel you well to the play with people that clearly are worse that you. If you have that do things to feel you better after a loss, the chess not is a game for you.
  3. Become a Better Chess Player Step 3.jpg
    Learn the values of the parts. A pawn is worth a point. The Knights and bishops are worth three points each. A tower is worth five points. A Queen is worth nine points.

    • Do not sacrifice any part unless you have a clear victory. For example, not you must sacrifice a horse for an attack on the flank of the King unless you are sure that you can win.
    • It is not appropriate to change a Bishop (by value of 3) and a horse (by value of 3) by a Tower (by value of 5), and a pawn (by value of 1) because the horse, and the Bishop are more powerful than a tower and the pawn will not come into play until the end of the game.
    • These values are relative. In some positions, a Bishop or a Knight are stronger than a tower.
  4. Become a Better Chess Player Step 4.jpg
    Always takes the bishops and horses. Pawns are used too and with exaggeration, and often developing parts fail to develop. Then, your opponent generally will be a Bishop through your pawn structure.

    • Too many pawns move weakens the flank of a castling King and you exposed to attacks. Move too many pawns usually weakens your structure of pawns in the endgame.
  5. Become a Better Chess Player Step 5.jpg
    Understands how to play. There are two main ways in which people play. Some have a strong defense and aggressive people who use this style can be very deadly. The other type takes advantage. In an instant they seize any error that his opponent commits, developing rapidly and leaving with an open position. None of them is the best, although the main population prefers a stronger than capital game.

    • It is easier to attack than defend. Some like to play schemes where sacrificed a pawn to get an attack because they find that they earn a higher percentage of games.
  6. Become a Better Chess Player Step 6.jpg
    Entering your first tournament. It enters there with the mindset that you are going to sweep this series of games. Forget the score. Forget about the scores.Only salt and play the best you can, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.
  7. Become a Better Chess Player Step 7.jpg
    Looking for an opponent. Find people who are better than you and “compete” against them. Play with them. Go to the tournaments that go. Little by little you acostumbrarás to your playing style and use it against them and others. Don’t think about this “rival” as someone whom he exceeded. Don’t give up if you lose. It plays again, and again, and again. Do this until you’ve learned your style and how to counter it.
  8. Become a Better Chess Player Step 8.jpg
    Studying to your GM (Grandmaster) followers. Studies, play, study, play. Learn how to use their techniques, and how to counter them.
  9. Become a Better Chess Player Step 9.jpg
    Lee one of the 10 best books written about chess. Here are some good books:

    • “Logical chess move by move” of Irving Chernev. It teaches you how to attack the King at the opening of the pawn and the King to play positional chess with the queen pawn openings.
    • “My system” from Aaron Nimzowitsch.
    • “Think like a grandmaster” of Alexander Kotov. This book explains how to analyze variations so you can play the game medium to a much higher level.
    • “Judgement and planning in chess” of Max Euwe. A classic book that explains how to judge a position based on the advantage of space, the combinations, the advantages of end, attack King and pawn structures.
    • “Bobby Fischer teaches chess,” Bobby Fischer. A classic book that teaches chess tactics for beginners.
    • “Chess master vs.” amateur chess”Max Euwe and Walter Meiden. This book explains how a teacher beats an amateur to make the right decision based on the needs of the positions.
    • “Practical chess end” of Irving Chernev. 300 end of game that begins simple but end up with a higher degree of difficulty.
    • “1001 check kill” of Fred Reinfield. A classic book that will help you to see several checkmate and to calculate the variations.
    • “Ideas behind the chess openings” of Reuben Fine. It explains the strategies behind the openings so that you can remember and play better.
    • “100 selected games” of Botvinnik.
    • “Basic end of chess” Reuben fine. A thick book that is a classic and explains all kinds of endings.
    • “Count points in chess” I. A. Horowitz. A classic book that gives a range of 32 positional features and teaches how convert these 32 advantage into a victory.
    • “How to win in the finals of the chess” I.A. Horowitz. This book explains strategies of late without complex variations.
    • “Fundamentals of chess” of José Raúl Capablanca. This book teaches the opening, middle game and end strategies.
  10. Become a Better Chess Player Step 10.jpg
    Learn the basic rules of the end. End of game strategy: “If you have the advantage in materials, change parts, not pawns. If you go back with materials, change pawns and you can force a draw”.

    • Without pawns, you must have at least one more tower to force a mate; the only exception to this is that two Knights and a King can not force a mate against a lone King.
    • The King is a powerful piece; use it to block and attack the pawns.
    • Bishops of opposite colors lead to tie most of the time, because none of the parties can move pawns without losing them. A pawn of Tower and a single Bishop are tied to a black King if the Bishop is the color opposite to the coronation box.
    • The bishops are worth more than the horses in all but the closed positions of pawns.
    • The pawns, towers, and the bishops are more valuable in the process of the game, so play to preserve them.
    • Many games with all the pawns on one side of the Board ends in draw. 90% of games masters ending in a draw where all of the pawns are on one side of the Board because the master with fewer pawns exchanged pawns and then sacrifice a Knight or Bishop by the last of the pawns. If you stay with only a Bishop or Knight you can not force a mate.
    • The tower and the horse, or the rook and Bishop, often can only draw against a tower.
    • In the end with the Queen, which the Queen moves to the Center first dominates the game.
  11. Become a Better Chess Player Step 11.jpg
    Powerful pawn structures are:

    • An “external pawn” attracts the King of the opponent to the other side, allowing you to eat the rest of his pawns or move your pawns on the other side of the Board.
    • A “last pawn” is not blocked by another pawn and must be pushed. Nimzovich said, the “last pawn must be pushed”.
    • A “protected passed pawn” is a passed pawn that is protected by another pawn.A protected passed pawn forces the opponent to constantly defend themselves against progress.
  12. Become a Better Chess Player Step 12.jpg
    The weak pawn structures are:

    • The doubled pawns do not defend each other and are under attack.
    • Isolated pawns are weak and should be screened by a piece.
    • Backward pawns which are on open rows are extremely weak and susceptible to be attacked by the towers.
    • A King in opposition can tie against a King pawn.
    • A tower on the seventh rank is worthy to sacrifice a pawn.
    • The Zugzwang is one in that if your opponent changes its position, it becomes weaker (prefer to renounce their turn), and is common in chess.
    • The end of rook and pawn are the most difficult, so avoid them.
  13. 13
    Plays chess at blind. You will teach how to not forget and learn what parts are attacking to what boxes. Since your brain is will be forced to memorize much information about the State of the Board of all ways, not will be so difficult that learn to organize it. You train slowly to see the image full, you will notice statements very complex on the State of the Board and you give has of what movement you must do. In fact, with the time will improve in the chess to blind rather than in the chess normal if you trained by equal.
  14. 14
    Note the patterns in them played that tend to do that to win the game. Not follow step 3 all the time without exceptions, but rather judged the arrangement of the parts and decide if it is worth making an Exchange. It is good to Exchange parts more easily if you take advantage. Use your skill to realize patterns. Make a move that you predijiste will cause that your opponent says a bug that allows you to win the game.Strategy may include know with which person you’re playing, you realize the errors committed at the start of the game or pay attention to the pattern of common mistakes that people tend to commit.

    Plays at least 10,000 chess games. Do you remember what we said about to become a true professional after having done anything for more than 10,000 hours? While performing the mentioned methods of practice they will help you, at the end everything boils down to play as many games as you can. If you are genuinely committed to become a better chess player, this is the path that you must follow.


  • Strategically, study “the art of the thinking logic”, of McDonalds and Seirawan. Books like “My system” are really classic, but far above the capabilities of beginners and intermediate players. You will end up wasting your time; you really have to learn to walk before we can run.
  • He understands that you as everything, practice makes perfect. Chess is no exception. In fact, need years to develop into a strong chess player, but don’t get discouraged. Get a consistent and reasonable curriculum (and keep it), and do gradually more and more strong.
  • Don’t believe the lies about “visual contact” or “mislead people bluffing”. Lee and focus on the Board. Chess is not poker.
  • When you study the strategy, write down the ideas and plans that will give you, and be sure to put them into practice in your own games. It is easy to have one of those moments where you say “AHA!” when you’re studying, but then immediately back to your same old thinking process on the Board. To improve, you must improve your thought process and put into practice new ideas on the Board.
  • Don’t worry about the study of the opening lines; When you start, you’ll see that nobody plays main lines (because nobody knows them), so all the memory you made will be for nothing. Focus on sound principles (move each piece once before moving any piece twice, centralize your pieces, inhibit the development of your opponent, develop your pieces so that your opponent pawn cost work advance) and you will at least equal the opening (which is what you should do, anyway). Do not play with unusual as the Blackmar-Diemer gambit or the Latvian gambit. Not depend on solid strategic understanding, can be easily refuted if your opponent has studied them (Defense Ziegler literally the Blackmar-Diemer gambit entirely rejects), and will inhibit the learning of the traditional principles of chess. You will win more games in the short term, but your overall performance will be seriously hampered. Play with classic fenders Ruy López, Italian, Scottish, siciliana (Sicilian defenses probably closed are the best Sicilian defenses for beginners) or positions of gambit with the Queen.
  • If you are below 1700 USCF, is likely to benefit more quickly by doing at least 30 minutes of tactics (chesstempo, chess.com, chess.emerald, etc.) a day.
  • If you have the money, and seriously want to be a great player, pay a trainer. If you are below 2000 USCF, the practice is looking for an expert or a teacher to give you weekly lessons; get a much stronger that coach could improve even your skill level.
  • The chess.com website is an excellent resource; chessmentor, your database and your videos (especially “live videos” of IM Rensch session) are all very instructive and useful. Another site, chessfriend.com, has excellent videos of play by play analysis items of great modern masters. It is recommended to play in ICC (if you can afford the membership), since there are fewer cheats on ICC, probably because the ICC costs up to $60 for a membership. ChessCube has an interface attractive, and have tournaments very interesting (area of war), but there are many cheats. If not you can afford your income to ICC, comes with FICS.
  • Practice a little of the mode called chess fast is good for you; You maintains strong tactically, can help you to have the “feeling” of an opening relatively quickly, and you help to give them guidelines Basic that are necessary. However, if are playing more than 3 or 5 games fast in a day, probably is too much for you. Play slow so that you allow thinking and work in your calculations. If play too chess fast, not will be capable of calculate with precision, or of apply the ideas of your studies, and will have problems to defeat to them opponents strong on the Board.


  • The Queen is the most valuable part. If your opponent is exposed to his Queen, where you can take it, it can be a trap or they could try to deceive you.

Chess movies showing at the competition

Yesterday, speaking of Steve McQueen , mentioned The MovieTube , in which Steve McQueen plays a game of chess (real and metaphorical) with Faye Dunaway . I’ve never played chess, I find it a fascinating, very cinematic game, which is full of possibilities. Unfortunately, in real life rarely has a chance to say something so forceful as lethal as â € œJaque Matea € ?? mamarracha without being pretentious. So, again, we must take refuge in the cinema to live those larger than life moments that God, in his infinite stinginess, we so often obscures. Here’s my ListA € of full movie

1. The Thomas Crown Affair (1968)

I said. For McQueen, the Dunaway (what a shame for women, which has been done in the face), the Pelia € | I think also for the time. A little about everything.

2. Fresh (1994)

When you are surrounded by gangsters, thieves and other ilk, the only site where you can play by the rules I guess it must be chess, because what is in the barrioâ € | forget it. The great Samuel L. Jackson proves to be a actorazo like the top of a pine tree again.

3. Stalag (1953)

One of the lesser known films Giant Billy Wilder . It is not surprising, since it is not a comedy precisely: in a Nazi refugee, one of the prisoners is able to sell his mother to survive one day € Masa | The moral is not very edifying precisely, but so is the human being, is not it, darling Holly (Golightly) ?: â € œRatas and super ratasâ € ??.

4. Searching for Bobby Fisher (1993)

Being a child prodigy is not easy in any field or in the entertainment world (I would tell Judy Garland ) nor in chess. The truth is that the movie is great, especially for the script, and Joe Mantegna , who is an actor that I love.

5. Insurgent (1957)

A movie of deadly chess, literally. Max Von Sydow life is played with the Grim Reaper, white against black, in a movie also filmed in black and white. As you know, Ingmar Bergman  is not exactly my weakness, but even a Reconco know its virtues. You can watch insurgent online free because the movie so old that it doesn’t have copyright anymore.

Moral: I, in life, what I’m wanting to say is not really Matea € â € œJaque ?? œenroqueâ € but â € ??, which is a word, and an attitude that seems much more civilized.

Chess Cafe



Afternoons until nightfall to play chess in the small and modest “Coffee-Pott” of Berlin in which you could play chess.

By chance I came as a stranger and I watched some silent and concentrated groups around a chessboard and at the same time I was surprised other tables with noisy people, arguing the moves, then I knew that if I wanted to play chess and measure my abilities with other enthusiasts, I had found my home for recreation.


But, then I realized, that all those lovers of chess would not allow me to play as an intruder in his circle.

Looking around the tables, I saw an old man with white beard, drinking his coffee and smoking a pipe.


I approached and asked if he would be willing to play a game with me.

He was immediately as, put the pieces on the Board and win, played who start.

Of course, the old did not know who had opposite.

Quickly I realized, that was one of the weaker opponents of all the coffee.

Despite everything, he wanted to avoid at all costs to losing.

Rather, my opponent embodied a conflict – but also a solid solution.

Its key patent for the contradiction between ambition and poor capacity used it in those moments, when his opponent believed, that the game was almost won.


The weakest acknowledged the superiority of its opponent.

Had to suffer deterioration of their position – until the defeat, which for him meant an unbearable loss of image.

For this reason, quickly activated the emergency brake in the sense, that began to reflect for some time and more about its next move.

At most take, this was made to wait up to 45 minutes and gave me the impression that the opponent had gradually fallen asleep.


The consequence was, that I was forced to put a logical claim to my opponent and I begged him to move tab as soon as possible.

All of this I started to grow impatient and I wanted to drive my strong attack to the deserved victory.

So sterile waiting made me nervous, and with good reason.

What I didn’t expect was that my adversary to react with a dignity and distant misunderstanding.

I had to hear from him, that we jugáremos without clock; without prior agreement.

All my intentions to appeal to the “fair play” in this sport and in personal relationships were totally useless.


This regular customer of that green coffee bean max review did it impress.

Flamboyantly filled his pipe and asked another latte.

Who is pressed for time or have drones in pants, not must never touch the chessmen.

So I exhausted my patience and told him:

“Yes, you are right, my winning position will lose and you are the only person in this place, which means something in chess.
In addition, it is only a matter of time!”

My pointed irony did not get their goal instantly express this last comment, came the waitress and brought him coffee.

So it is stressed, for who was the advantage “it is only a matter of time“.

I have to confess, that another remedy was not me before exploit to my King, accompanied by a mocking smile on my part.


I got up and I left. But “in passant” parts of the Board arrollé with my sleeve.

Rooks, bishops and pawns fell everywhere.


The winner of the game, very surprised, raised his eyebrows.

What a rude!

It he sipped loud your hot coffee and then headed towards the central field of friends and chess players.


Waiting for you there, modestly group asked: “who has won your game?“.

With all the calm of the world replied: “I, who fate!

The event was attended; Mayor Jorge Macri, Ludovico cricket Secretary of education and Director of education Susana de Latorre.

There were a number of activities that summoned a crowd of neighbors, some of them fond of chess, but many others who were attracted by the colorful and artistic display.

The ceremony began about 3 p.m., when María Kodama read two poems on chess composed by Jorge Luis Borges, while the living chess guys, led by the Coordinator of the school, Professor Beatriz Liendro, depicted with their movements some of the words expressed by the great Argentinian writer in his text, in relation to the chess pieces. It was a luxury to have it current champion Argentine Sub 8, Agustín Fuentes, collaborating with the action of the boys on the giant chessboard. All this within the framework of the new amphitheatre.

Then I talk about the Mayor Jorge Macri, who highlighted the work that has been done in the municipality with the recovery of public spaces, also marking the importance of what has been done by engineer Mario Petrucci, Director of the Municipal School of chess and also present in the event, both in regards to everything to do with the figurines, as in the schools of mathematics and robotics.

Finally, the participants moved to the other end of the square, where the treatment of restoration of boards dedicated to all our world chess champions, as well as the new Board carrying the plate with the name of the international master for 16 years was Alan Pichot, who the year past obtains the highest world class title. Alan thanked the recognition and received demonstrations of affection. Other former world champions who were present in the tribute were: Grand Master Oscar Panno, champion of the world under 20 in 1953, master Internacional Marcelo Tempone, world under 17 champion in 1979, Grand Master Hugo Spangenberg, two-time world champion by team Sub 26 in 1993 and 1997, and great Maestro Diego Valerga, world champion by team Sub 26 in 1997.

A real feast for the neighborhood of Mauritius villas, the municipality of Vicente López and the Argentine chess in general.
