Teachers and friends crowded in a room watching the match. They wanted to see how the course of match between me with Mas Pulung.
Chairman of our chess class group was me, I conferred with the Chairman of the squad of 7B class. There was Mas Pulung who held the post of the Chairman of our opponent group. Mas Pulung invited me to select the pieces would be matched whether the first player played white or black pieces. Mas Pulung was very confident. He is very confident of being able to beat me even though he held the black pieces.
The second player in my squad wanted to hold of white pieces. He insisted to hold that pieces because that’s his chance of winning the match. Obviously our class will lose out, as there would be two players who play with black pieces on our squad. Me and the third player. The third player on my chess class group was very annoyed because it’s remarkable that he would hold of the black pieces. But he couldn’t do anything because his playing quality was indeed under our second player.
I succumbed. Me as the first player having held the black pieces. Mas Pulung somewhat surprised by my decision. But then he shrugged and began putting his chess pieces on the game table.
Mas Pulung composing his chess pieces very quickly. I frankly was rather nervous indeed. Inside I blasphemed decision of my second cast, my who insisted on holding the white pieces. Whereas, the Mas Pulung class had already succumbed to let us take the decision.
Mas Pulung helped me to compile my chess pieces on the game table. The atmosphere became tense and fuss. The referee asked the audience to calm down. The eighth grade class who has been defeated by Mas Pulung and his friends also seem to watch. They’re still curious about Mas Pulung with his friends games in their group.
