“Today, esports competitions are very popular, and chess and checkers are traditionally one of the most popular and popular sports in the world. Esports disciplines and classic mind games have a lot in common. They develop attention, speed of reaction and assimilation of information, strategic thinking, teach to make decisions quickly. That is why the idea arose to hold such a large general tournament. I would especially like to note that the competition brought together children and parents, people of different ages and professions and helped representatives of different generations to better understand each other and expand the range of common interests. And the number of views of the broadcasts of the tournament games exceeded 800 thousand, ”stressed Marat Kuchushev, director of the Moscow center“ Patriot.Sport ”, which was the organizer of the competition.

In the League of Legends discipline, the victory was won by the guys from the Me and the Boys team. The team, which includes Moscow schoolchildren and university students, has repeatedly won tournaments of the Moscow center “Patriot.Sport” in the framework of the Moscow school eSports league. The guys were also the winners of the All-Russian eSports school league of the Russian movement of schoolchildren.

“Our team is me, Grigory Mareev, Yegor and German Marov, Danila Startsev, Kirill Sadykov and Alexey Telnov. We got to know each other through eSports and immediately found a common language. Our parents support us in our hobby for computer games. We train for an average of three hours a day. This does not interfere with learning at all. On the contrary, it helps. In English, I have a solid five, because most of the guides have to be studied in this language. The guys and I are on the same wavelength! This helped us to win the Big City Tournament, ”said Grigory Mareev, an eighth grade student at school # 1678, the youngest player in his team.

Online competitions in chess, checkers and giveaways were held in two stages – they were qualifying games and finals. More than 1.6 thousand Muscovites have joined them. At the qualifying stage, several massive tournaments were held in each of the disciplines. The strongest players of the qualifying tournaments fought in the final games. The schedule of games was structured so that the same participant, if desired, could try his hand at all three disciplines. Matvey Shelest, a sixth grade student from school No. 319, won the chess competition, Viktor Zvezdin from school No. 86 named after M.Ye. Katukova. The victory in the giveaway competition was won by the mathematics teacher from school No. 1512 Konstantin Botko.
