I’ve shown this puzzle up the club the last couple of nights, but in case you missed it, here’s one of the most amazing puzzles in chess. See how you get on solving it!
The club’s winning streak finally came to an end tonight – though not its unbeaten run, which continues to 9 successive matches after tonight’s two Bodley games.
After a 1-2 in the Challengers section of Gonzaga at the weekend, the new ratings list shows Benildus take the top two spots in terms of rating gains since the last list.
Alex Byrne won the Gonzaga Challengers just 12 months after scoring 0/6 in the 2013 Gonzaga tournament, his first ever tournament, while Mihailo has taken over from Odhrán as the number 1 ranked player in the school.
In the club’s seventh win in a row(!), the Armstrong recorded a 6.5-1.5 win over 3rd placed Bray last night. Bray were missing a number of regulars, but we’ll take a bit of luck after a rocky start.
The Bodley As were hosted by Inchicore last week, and entered the match top of the table. A big win was hoped for, and early signs were good, with solid advantages on every board.
The Bodley A and O’Hanlon both recorded wins tonight, meaning that each of our five teams has started off the year with a win – quite a rare occurrence!
