Well thanks to jim who found a lcal chess club close to me , i paid them a visit last week and was made welcome they have a nice site too on the net . Conditions were a bit cramped and there was no beer on tap but a pub on the corner was handy lol !!!!.i had my first taste of chess clocks so that was unique in its self never played with a clock ticking away ??..
I should be going again this week to get more feel for the club and meet more of there membership and maybe play again this time with notation ?? (must rember pens ? ) .I will add more to this blog as i go along it might come in handy to ppl ( i d k? ) so untill then ttfn
So i went for a 2nd time made a small mistake was a little under the influence ??
had 3 games of blitz against one of there stronger players and lost all three .need to practise my blitz a bit more ,again only tea/ coffee on order ,the coffee helped but was too late 3-0 down by then lol not sure if i,m going next week due to expenses but will try .
they had a league cancelation so they were home the game has been rearranged for a later date i may attend this to see what happens and learn from the expiercence .on the night i tried a new format so i need to work on it a bit but it was effective to make the games interesting .so i,m using them now in other games and writing down moves to study my mistakes .win or lose well theres more to come so untill next time ttfn .
well now for the challenge for me ..?? Can i win a game at the chess club ??????... it looks as tho i,m going 2morrow due to the illness of my kids its nothing serious just a bug /virus as the doc says these days .so mum can look after them again lol. will be trying out annotation this week as well as the clock if i succeed i,ll post the game here for critical analyisis .Oh by the way the chess club i visit is based in sittingbourne check out there web site quite nice needs an update tho lol.. well untill next time ttfn
went to the club lost 3-0 again this time more sober last game was interesting tried a twin knight attack but he wouldnt move his queen .which is where i fell short so we shall try again next week i hope ..odds on me winning 1 very low .must stop playing blitz style and think more this is the club i visithttp://www.sittingbournechess.co.uk/ check it out if ur a local
