Great Turnout To Start Year Off

Posted: 04/02/2020 by Ian in Club News

We had a great turnout on the first night of the year with 26 players fronting. Several new members joined up, and some members returned after an absence of several years. The club keeps getting stronger and stronger.  We managed only two games due to some computer teething problems and will continue the tournament in two weeks time at slightly longer time control. Next week is the GM simul so don’t miss out.

Bojkov

We have the possibility of a GM Simul on club night 11th February.
Dejan Bojkov is a Bulgarian GM and was champion of Bulgaria in 2009. He was the trainer for Antoaneta Stefanova who was Women’s World Champion from 2004 to 2006. Degan gave a simul at the club back in June 2018 that was very popular. The final score for that night was 24.5 to 0.5 with credit going to Prashanth who took the draw. William Lynn and Joel Crombie were in with chances on that night also. The cost to play will be $10 payable on the night. If you are interested please let Ian know by completing the form below. Note the simul will only go ahead if we have the numbers.
