Devansh was completely new to Chess and had to start with the basics. He has been pursuing the course regularly and consistently from day one till date with the same enthusiasm and dedication. It is pertinent to note that Devansh was a novice to chess. However, with proper guidance and coaching he has gradually acquired the skills required for chess. He has learnt the game entirely at the Academy and has progressed in visualization and calculation skills. He has also developed his game plan skills which are vital for any chess player. He participated in the Inter-Branch Talent Hunt Chess tournament organized by Buddhibal Krida Trust in August, 2018. Additionally, he played the game against 4 players simultaneously during Gera's Carnival of Joy. Our chess coach will now be working on polishing Devansh's opening, middle game and end game skills. He will also be working on his focus and concentration along with confidence building, logical reasoning, and the ability to follow directions, predictions, and forecasting skills.
