Club Championships

Can you get your name on the Wall of Fame its Anti-Chess this week where piece sacrifices are definitely a good idea.
Can you lose all your pieces before your opponent?

The Rat

This I am definitely looking forward to. Our very own Jon Lawrance is putting his reputation as a seasoned exponent of The Rat to the test.
See if you can beat Jon with the white pieces from the position after 1.d4 d6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 everyone welcome.
Log on to Lichess shortly before 7:15pm on Wednesday and look for the link in your messages or from the Team page.

Basic Chess Training

With Dave Graham explaining the Basic concepts of Defence. This is a must for all our Under 1600s as this aspect of chess is often forgotten in favour of the Art of the Attack.

XIV Worldwide Junior

After the heroic efforts of our Under 16s last time to avoid relegation can we repeat the feat or is it possible to dream of a Podium finish.
The promoted teams include the Welsh Dragon who have fought their way from Division F to Division A. So will we see some Welsh in the chat instead of Spanish.
No Russian teams this week in Division A.
