More important perhaps for the organisers is the success of the event is also well satisfied with 258 young children from 24 countries coming together, for sure many whom are young talents, but what is most happy is that all clearly love chess passionately!

Please go to the official tournament blog at where you can get all the games (and of course the results).

The 4th World School Chess Championship 2008, held from 23 to 31 July in Singapore, is organised by the Singapore Chess Federation and co-hosted by Teck Ghee Community Club.
