Club Night 22/10/19


A busy club night with the juniors back and a healthy adult turnout too. Some of the Congress participants were no doubt resting their laurels or licking their wounds (mine take a fair bit of licking) but we did have the joint Dundee Premier Champions in attendance, David Findlay to play a Club Championship game, and Ed Spencer to give the benefit of his expertise to some new members and us lesser mortals.

In the Championship, David overcame Jim Anderson as his Philidor-style setup vanquished Jim’s Trompowsky favourite. Alan Woodcock’s solid London System held Frank Stevenson to a draw.

We had a return visit too from young Max Wang who enjoyed tuition from Jim and a few friendlies. Max’s parents also are hopefully catching the bug after sessions with myself and Christine!

An even busier week in store next week, with four(!) matches on at the club, plus the first TAFCA Allegro at Kirkcaldy on Wednesday. Chess never sleeps.
