The human brain is one of the unique organs and at the same time has an important role in running the system in the human body. To train the brain’s ability to carry out its role, it is often done with sports that stimulate the brain to work harder than usual. Chess is a sport that has been believed to be the most effective brain teaser method since the 6th century. Therefore, chess has been heavily contested both at domestic and international levels, and the most recent being held was the Eastern Asia Chess, chess competition, in Bangkok, Thailand.

The competition which brought together chess players who participated from 13 countries from the East Asian region, presented a tight rivalry between countries. Indonesia, which became one of the participating countries, managed to show its best performance by winning 8 gold medals, 9 silver medals and 4 bronze medals.
