On a cultural note, the Faming Mountain Chess Club visited the World Mind Games venue to teach Grandmasters an initiation game for playing chess. The Grandmasters enjoyed being taught something they had never seen before, while they exchanged smiles and laughter with the young chinese chess players.

On a day where no school visit took place,
the students of the Faming Mountain Chess Club visited the competition venue.
Chess Grandmasters Mr. Bartek Heberla and Mr. Pieter Heine Nielsen welcomed the 15 students of the Chess Club at the spectator area of the Beijing International Convention Center. This time around, the Grandmasters were the ones getting taught by 5-10 year olds.
