The Philosophy Society is hoping to manage a weekly chess club so people can get together more often and play friendly matches for fun.s brought Karim against Raza and Hamza against Shahraiz. People pulled their chairs around the two matches and watched excitedly.

Hamza beat Shahraiz 20 minutes into the game. The other semifinal went on for long and ended in a stalemate. Raza made it to the final round with Hamza and the last match went on for about 45 minutes. The two players deserved their places in the final and luckily Hamza won the neat, big and fancy chessboard.
