Horsham 4 beat Uckfield 2 Away

Although Horsham 4 lost their most recent match, they did have more success in their previous fixture, which was away at Uckfield on the Wednesday, 24th October. They defeated the Uckfield second team narrowly 3-2, after their opponents decided to resign the unfinished board 2 game rather than go to adjudication.

The results of the individual games are given in the table below:

Horsham 4 go down to Worthing 3 at home

Horsham 4 suffered a heavy defeat to Worthing 3 at home last Tuesday, going down by 4.5 to 0.5. There was the odd moment of misfortune (e.g. Laurence Draper's blunder against David Wallis when the exchange up), but generally the team was outclassed by a side containing a trio of junior Grahams.

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.
