    These photos were from a tournament put on by the Berkeley Chess School. Several elementary schools in Oakland received free chess lessons once a week from chess masters, and learned a lot about strategy, critical thinking, and patience. I’m a teacher at Maxwell Park, and my students benefited so much from the lessons and from the experience of the tournament. Thanks Berkeley Chess School!
