coach v coach

Nov 28, 2011, 10:29 AM |

Played casually (no clocks) at the recent Junior 4 NCL where we entered four teams from the Northampton Junior Chess Club.

Amongst the "fun" whilst waiting for the kids to come out of the playing hall, was this little gem - me versus our group organiser/leader/coach, Ian Marsh. Ian doesn't compete and generally only likes the odd game of exchange chess. On this showing, perhaps he should turn out occasionally! Unfortunately for me, he's still a reasonably useful player and managed to find accurate moves. (I'm sure it was with the help of those around him but can't recall all of the conversations!! All I know is that NO ONE offered me any useful advice whatsoever!!!).
