  • The Twin Master camp led by masters Daniel and Samuel He was a success! There were 15 kids split into 2 sections, an entry level group and intermediate level group. Daniel taught the intermediate group and lesson topics included the initiative, planning the attack on the king, and positional imbalances. The students would play training games starting from a specific position to help practice important concepts. Samuel taught the entry level group and lessons were focused on techniques to improve tactical vision, important endgames, and the planning process. The kids were very energetic throughout and had a lot of fun! Some of the chess activities were bughouse tournament, blitz tournament, chess brain teasers, blitz simul with the twins, and extremely difficult chess puzzles.
