Both boys participated in an all-comers chess tournament. Bayley got to see their friends from the old school that they learned to play chess with, plus it is great practice for the regional tournament in a few weeks.
Overall, they did fine. Bayley scored 3 points and Hayden had 2. But, Hayden was quick to point out two of his losses were to kids who went to regionals last year, one of them winning. As he says, "It's okay to lose to people who are better than you."
