TWINS Stanley and James Zhang surprised many during the Fiji Chess Federation schools competition on Sunday.

Stanley eventually won the secondary schools title when the International Secondary School student scored five out of seven. He edged Keez Terubea via tie-break under a swiss system after they ended the competition with five points.

James finished fourth with four points.

Federation president Dr Virgilio de Asa said the twins only learnt to the sport nine months ago.

"The Zhang twins impressed a lot since they had learnt to play chess only 9 months ago," he said.

"Stanley managed to draw against second placed Keez Terubea of Nakasi High and third placed Menash Fareed (4.5/7) of Yat Sen Secondary, who were top contenders for the spot.

"Victories registered by newer players shows that our Sunday coaching sessions at Fiji Club under the guidance of national representatives candidate master (CM) Calvin Prasad, CM Manoj Kumar, CM Goru Arvind and WCM Gloria Sukhu are helping to introduce fresh talent."
