Halesowen v Isle of Wight (War of the Roses)

Sveshy | Mar 25, 2020
There is a live team battle organised for tomorrow evening, that's Thursday 26th March at 1900 hours, against Isle of Wight chess club. They have a mixture of players, including some with very little league experience, so all are needed to help support Halesowen's first foray into online chess. Let's kick off with a victory. The J4NCL is launching an online league soon and it seems online may eventually overtake OTB chess as a preferred method of playing league chess. It makes sense when you...

Halesowen arrived at Kidderminster last night needing a win to move into shared top spot with South Birmingham. Paul Evans captained the team and placed Andy Ambrose on board one, myself on two, himself on 3 and Finlay on 4. In order of finish, I'm first.

Nik had seen deeper into the position though and took a chance that didn't, at first glance, appear as though it should work. Indeed, Nik's 'chance' could well have been construed as a blunder. Unfortunately for Chester, he missed any opportunity he had of getting something out of the game with a blunder of his...

As I'm writing this, the games should be finished. Although with the hazy rules surrounding just how much time one has got when adjournments are allowed, I can't be precisely sure as it is only the following morning. There was a buzz around the team while I was there - technically as an enemy, being a part of the A team in the same division. A win for them tonight would knock us (the A team) off top spot meaning they win the division with a likely 1st and 2nd for Halesowen.  Not sure of...
