We’ll be running another of our regular club blitzes next Wednesday.
All posts for the month January, 2016
OK, you can do this up the club anyway, but Ross leads the way on 3/3 in the 1300-1900 section of the first Enniscorthy Congress, and as a result, you can watch his round 4 game live here from 7pm.
Edit – as per Desmond’s comment below, round 6 is just starting (2pm). Ross is a point clear – this may be a short game (!), but you can still watch itlive at the same link above.
In which we took a step closer to replacing ourselves in the O’Hanlon, while the Armstrong A slipped up and the Bodley won again.
The club’s increasingly-non-Christmas but still Charity Blitz will take place on 16th March.
The club acquired another couple of books for the collection at the weekend – they’ll be available to members to borrow from Wednesday.
The January ratings list has been published. If you’re not on it, it probably means your club fees are outstanding!
Gonzaga is easily the club’s most most profitable tournament on the weekend circuit – last year, the club won one of the three sections and had two players finish as runners-up; this year, we took one title and an amazing four runners-up spots!
Tomorrow will see the first (and hopefully not the last!) coaching session up the club, with Mel Ó Cinnéide from our Armstrong A looking at “Winning in chess”, a topic which is often far more complicated than it sounds! We’re hoping to start around 7:30 in the geography room.
Featuring a thematic game in the Milner-Barry, another fun line from the analysis of Aodhán’s BEA game at the weekend, and wins for the Armstrong A and Bodley.
In the 2012/13 season, when Phibsboro were claiming their seventh Armstrong in 12 years and our second team were delighted to have survived relegation from the Heidenfeld by a whole two points, there was surely no-one at either club who reckoned that less than three years later, we’d be disappointed at a narrow defeat when we met.
