Some talented and competitive young people came together in the name of chess for the weekend. One will be named the champion Sunday night.
The Arkansas State Chess Championship is being held in the Fulton Room at the Statehouse Convention Center.
Last year’s champion, nine-year-old Ruifeng Li, was back to defend his title and perfect score.
Tournament organizer Alan Myatt says, “It’s been held in Batesville. Good to have it back here in Little Rock.”
The championship match will be held Sunday night.
