Weds 4 July/ 18 July

David's coaching evening went ahead on 18 July and was well received by a mixed ability bunch of 8 club members. We kicked off by looking at some winning line continuations. Alex and Neil seemed the most accurate solvers. David then took us through some Guiocco Piano wins by White, before concluding with some endgame studies. I don't know if any player present will be tempted back to the Guiocco, but if each of us can play just one more precise endgame next season it would prove a very productive evening !

Next Club night - Weds 1 August. Rapidplay Team Event between Ashfield and Gambit clubs. Any member wanting to play, please let me know.

Fun Chess Night

Up-date. It drew 10 participants and was a very enjoyable evening. Jerry and Glenn showed their eye for a mating combination with 5 moves in hand in Progressive Chess. Neil enjoyed all the formats until Round 5 when his early loss of both his knights deprived his pawns of their super-powers. Visitor Janos enjoyed Round 1 but was otherwise not impressed by these stupid games. Thanks to David for leading this.
At our next Club night on Weds 18 July, David one of chess' leading professional coaches will give a general coaching session aimed from beginners to ECF 150 players. Visitors are welcome.
