Mid Sussex Chess League starts for Horsham

Our Mid Sussex season starts off in style on Tuesday with Horsham 1 v Horsham 2 and Horsham 4 v Horsham 5...good luck to all 20 players participating!

I have had a few queries about who is in which team...it is not quite as simple as that as we often find players competing in more than one team - sometimes even three!

World Chess Rebranding

A colleague sent me a link about the rebranding of World Chess. Andrew Paulson, founder and director of Agon, who bought the rights to the World Chess Championship, engaged the services of design agency Pentagram to create a new identity for World Chess.

Last night saw the start of the club's knockout competition. This consists of a main draw and a plate section for first round losers. The games are now all played using the Mid-Sussex League Knockout time control: 30 moves in 60 minutes, followed by all remaining moves in 30 minutes.

Quickplay starts the season!

Last night's quickplay started the season off with real gusto...some players have already reached the semis and some of us managed to begin to remember the moves.

Don't forget that it is the first round of the Knockout next week so the serious chess is about to begin!
