Parker came in second place in his chess club chess tournament that has been going on all semester. Why, might you ask, did he not win? Well...Parker just learned how to play chess in January. The boy who won, Parker's good friend Jack, has been playing since he was 5. So second place is pretty damn impressive especially if you consider there were 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders in the class. Parker only lost one game. The last one. To Jack. Jack knew he won, but Parker thought this other kid came in second so when the teacher called out the scores and read the other kids name, Parker figured it out and his face lit up. He was literally shaking in his seat and jumped up going "Yeah! Yeah!" pumping his fist when the teacher presented the trophy. He was very happy.
