Interested in how the website fared in 2014? check out the post below–

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Club Nights Resume Tuesday

Posted: 28/01/2015 by Ian in Club News

We are back to our usual clubnight schedule this coming Tuesday 03 Feb, 7pm. A proposed calendar for the year has been posted here and member comments are invited. We will start proceedings with a couple of nights of informal blitz (guests welcome) before the Autumn Cup then gets underway, followed by the club Champs commencing in March. Note that this year we will be operating only during the Hamilton Boys High School term time. See you next week !

If you missed it here is a great post on CHESSBASE about the recent New Zealand open. Scroll down for a picture of Hilton carrying out a post mortem. Hilton Graham and Fuatai took part in one or other of  the various events (rapid, open, blitz). Congratulations to Graham for his very respectable 18th place in the blitz !! Results can be viewed on the New Zealand chess website
