A Successful Season for Central!

(Kevin Argyle)

A makeshift season admittedly but it was great to have OTB chess up and running again in Notts.

Both Central 1 and 2 performed creditably with the second team finishing up amongst the leaders in division 5 and Central 1 in second place in division 3 as I write (although admittedly unlikely to stay there as other teams have games left). It will be interesting to see what the structure of the league looks like next season with many of the normal league rules suspended for this one.

The first team were greatly helped by outstanding performances from Alan and Mark on boards 1 and 2. Alan scored 7.5/10 and Mark 6.5/8! With Adrian Dibble scoring 2/3 and myself drawing 6 games out of 8 it was a very solid season overall.

The second team were also impressive with a 50% score. Ably captained by Joe Sollini (6/10), four other players scored 50% or better with Mark Turner scoring 3.5/5 in the second half of the season.

Look out for some interesting and fun tournaments throughout the summer, starting with a ‘hand & brain’ tournament on Tuesday 17th May at 7:30 (what, don’t know what that is? come along and find out!).
