1-2-3 - the best way to score!
04.06.2017 14:58
SCORING 1-1/2-0  OR 3-1-0  OR 3-2-1  OR 1-2-3

Every chess player has heard of 1-1/2-0 – one point for a win, half a point for a draw and zero for a loss. Many players will have heard of 3-1-0 (three for a win, one for a draw and zero for a loss). Not so many will have heard of 3-2-1 (three for a win, two for a draw and one for a loss) which has been used in Swedish schools’ chess for many years.

Our recommendation is slightly different: 1-2-3. But the difference is very important, as we explain below. Our recommendation dates from the CiS Council meeting in Konya, Turkey in 2015.

1  -  2  -  3

What is 1-2-3?

When a player sits down to play a game, he or she scores one point. That is for making the effort to turn up to play. If the game is drawn, each player gets an extra point. If the game ends decisively, the winner gets an extra two points. Thus there are three possible scores for a player in any game: 1-2-3.

Why 1-2-3?

There is a very big difference between 3-2-1 and 1-2-3 which may not immediately be apparent. 3-2-1 ensures that no player ever scores zero. However, the ‘one point for a loss’ is clearly nothing but a consolation. In 1-2-3, the initial point is a positive reward for taking part. It is difficult to overstate the importance of this in social and psychological terms.

In team events, not only does no player suffer the embarrassment and demotivation of a zero score but every single player makes a positive contribution.

Another, more modest advantage, is that there are no half-points involved.

What does 1-2-3 look like in practice?

CASTLE Project – Final Conference – Turin 26 May
02.05.2017 19:16
erasmuslogoThe CASTLE project began in 2015 with funding of almost €250,000 from the EU under the Erasmus+ scheme. The initial project now comes to an end with this conference. CASTLE is an acronym for a  Chess curriculum to Advance Students´ Thinking and Learning skills in primary Education.

The project has been run in parallel in three countries: Italy, Germany and Spain. 50 primary school teachers and 900 children have been involved so far. You can read more about the project here and below.

FIDE joined in the project primarily to fund the production and dissemination of almost 50 videos showing how to implement the early years part of the course – chess for very young children on a giant chessboard. More information and the Early Years Skills videos themselves – in Italian but with sub-titles in English (and shortly in German and Spanish as well) – can be found on the dedicated web site eys.fide.com.

See below for the Conference programme and contact details.
