Welcome Back

Lawrence Trent

It was great to see the return of a former member after many years , former third team captain Danny Holloway. And what nudged him back?

He was on a flight back from Hamburg and took the opportunity to catch up on some online chess when he noticed his fellow traveller was doing the same. He also noticed his grading was very much stronger. They got chatting and found they had many things in common and got on well. After a while he asked what his new friend did for a living. After a slightly embarassed pause he said he was Lawrence Trent and played chess for a living. Many of us know him as a chess commentator either for Chess24, for various tournaments or for being Caruana's manager.

Lawrence nudged Danny into coming back to the club and we are very glad he did!
