At our Club night on Weds 6, June, John will take on all-comers. John is our strongest club player with an ECF grade of 199. One of his best wins this season was his win against Jonah Willow in the final Ashfield 1 match of the season, which helped A1 stay up in Division 1. One of John's lesser wins was against me in the recent Derby Jamboree, which I'll be looking to avenge!.

 Club members and visitors are invited to this event.

It was an enjoyable event and I got my revenge. John played 2 rounds of simultaneous play. In the Blitz with the White pieces, against 7 opponents, he won 4 and drew 3 , despite being quite charitable with his pieces. I think Ray, Neil and myself got the draws. In a timed Simul. of 45 minutes playing Black against 6 opponents , John won 4 but conceded 2 losses to myself and visitor, Andy Bacon..

In all John played 13, Won 8, drew 3 and lost 2. This nearly matches the number of games John usually plays in the course of a regular League season. Thanks to John. We will be planning other club nights over the summer at fortnightly intervals.  Our Club AGM is on 20 June.
