CLUB NIGHT REPORT & CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP: Thurs 9th Nov 17
Oh what a night to remember with over 42 players down, 18 of them juniors! It was the first round of our Club Championship and it’s been a long time since we had so many players entered. Indeed we are now up to 49 players entered. Some took byes and others have either played before tonight or play next week.
Most of our new juniors took part for the first time and they seemed to enjoy the experience. Not only that but some of them played some really good chess on the night It was a busy night setting up and taking down all the tables and equipment, but it was worth it!
CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP: 1st round
All the results and standings so far are on our website. The three shock results of the night were Colin Young’s (1292) victory over Craig Nicol (1539), Subhayu Banerjee`s (1359) win against Paul Shafi (1584), and Ananya Sanu`s (J11) win over Anish Chavdnuri (J11).
A special mention should also go to Charvi Kanodia`s (J10) for winning against Jake Proctor (J12). Both are good players and it could have gone either way, but Charvi deserves credit for the way she played on the night.
I need a holiday after that. Do the club funds stretch that far?
Next week, same again I think!
