There should be a break each day between the 3rd & 4th sessions (of 6).

The tournament for the participants (chess clocks should be available) will provide

participants with valuable insights, especially concerning the ways that psychology may be

involved, as well as the simple opportunity to reinforce the basic knowledge of how the

pieces move. Therefore, there should be some time avaiable available after the tournament

for questions and to discuss matters arising.
