Photo submitted Maggie Wells Staff Writer The Indian Valley chess team, the Silent Knights, played their last tournament of the season April 27. The match was an unrated "Bughouse" chess tournament. Bughouse is a variant of standard chess that involves team members using captured pieces. While not a league sanctioned variant, it is a popular type of chess to play. The name bughouse comes from a slang term for a mental hospital and derives from the apparent chaotic look of the board. Each team played seven other teams as part of the league's end-of-the-year celebration. The Silent Knights played well. Nick Hampton had 4 wins, Ethan Stapfhad 1, Colton Peters had 2 and Diego Garcia-Couoh's team had 3. The Silent Knights is actively recruiting team members for next year's team. Contact Scott Abrams through the Indian Valley Academy office for details. Silent Knights play their last tournament of the season in Chico on April 27.
