Traxler Counter Attack - just awesome!!!!

Sholver and Moorside Community Club - back on Mon 30th Sept

After our match at Ashton last Wednesday our club resumes on Monday evening at 6.30pm. 

We received a very harsh lesson. We were completely out-graded on each board so it was always going to be tough.

As far as I aware from 11 boards over 2 games we only managed a win from Kyle Dissanayake, Dylan Crothers, Sithun De Silva and a draw from Lawrence Moustafa. Well done guys.

The lesson learnt is crystal clear, you play too fast you will make mistakes and more likely than not lose. I have a challenge on my hands to make our kids slow right down. This is what I will be working on at my club and after school clubs over the next few weeks.

Ironically I lost both of my games on time as 25 mins is not enough for me these days! My 2nd game in particular was probably one of the most complicated games I have ever played and 2 hours wouldn't have been enough to work out what was going on.

Thanks for playing everyone.

Chess Group on Columbus cruise ship

A few of my chess group on the cruise during 'at sea' days. Even made it into the daily programme of activities. Yes I know I supposed to be having a break!!

None of the group had played much before and after 3 or 4 lessons were playing full games. I must have been doing something right because they kept coming back.
