Bewitched Chess

Screenprint of Bewtiched

Here is an unusual thing to play with on the internet - Bewitched chess. Its gives you a form of aided blindfold chess with a fun visual display which at times can be a bit perplexing. Its not the strongest engine to play against which is just as well because I didnt adjust so well.

Might be a bit of fun for a Bank Holiday

Horsham 3 Success?

Horsham 2 table of results

Horsham 3 have been confirmed 2nd in the second division - this is a very strong division and does a lot of credit to the players involved.

Horsham 1 Second, Horsham 2 Relegated

Disappointed thinker

John got an update from Brian Denman (see below) about the Brighton Crowborough match and its the worst possible result for Horsham 1 and Horsham 2 - a draw. This pushes Horsham 1 to second place, just nudging them out of the top spot once again (our last win was in 2010) and means relegation for Horsham 2 ... a disappointing end to the season.

A frustrating end to the season for Horsham 2

The 2nd team completed their fixtures with two matches in the space of 4 days. Last Friday we played our re-arranged match away at Crowborough who fielded their strongest team of the season (!) and edged a 3-2 victory.

Hastings 1 v. Horsham 2

The 2nd team travelled to third place Hastings last Thursday. We managed three solid draws on Boards 1, 3 & 4, losing the match 3½-1½.
Phil was somewhat unfortunate as he had the initiative against his opponent’s London System but overlooked a combination that resulted in the loss of a piece.
J Sugden (191) ½-½ P Harbott (171)
H Tebbs (186) 1-0 P Stimpson (170)
B Cafferty (183) ½-½ T Pavlovic (170)
P Kelly (169) ½-½ I Comley (167)
B Ruane (160) 1-0 P Taylor (164)
