They say its Dangerous to hold aTiger by the tail ? this is true very true.

well last night my chess club Musselburgh chess club were playing against Edinburgh chess club younger players called the Tiger Cubs, you should never under estimate a young chess player most chess players that play in tourniments or in chess leagues will know this.

the cub have a good bunch of players and are well looked after by chess parents and tutors The young gentlman That I played was Ben He a young Asian boy who's

father I met after our game and unlike his son did not play chess but is a champion in his own right at Badminton Mr He said that his son takes more after his mother in the brains department.

The Edinburgh Chess Club was established in the year 1822 and that was a long time a go I think that they are the second oldest chess club in the world and they are still going strong in 2008 the Edinburgh chess club have some of the top players in Scotland they have 5 teams in all two of which are juniors Tigers1 and Tiger2 my team got beat 4 1/2 to 1 1/2 my game was quit a long game more than seventy moves, but the end game was difficult and I thought that I was going to get a draw but Ben refused when I made the offer and he went on to win with a bishop and pawn against my solo pawn tricky that it was the young man stayed stedfast  with a dogged determination kings were back and forth each trying to get the oppisition but it was young Ben that prevaled and I had to resign.
