World Cities League: The Hague vs Novosibirsk

World Cities League: The Hague vs Novosibirsk

RainPiper | May 21, 2021
In the eighth round of the World Cities League 2021, Division 2A, we play Novosibirsk: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1243259/games Given the live standings below, it seems that we are a serious contender for promotion this season. The match against Belgrado, however, might still turn into a loss, with five games running. In any case, the last two matches against Novosibirsk and Santa Fe are crucial. But more important than promotion are nicely balanced matches and games ...

World Cities League: The Hague vs Perth

RainPiper | Apr 21, 2021
In the seventh round of the World Cities League 2021, Division 2A, we play Perth: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1233010/games Perth is one of the teams we play regularly. Last season we had a nice encounter with 34 players each, which we won by a small margin. Let's try and repeat this. As you can see from the live standings below, we are still in the race for promotion. The ongoing match against Belgrade, however, is likely to turn eventually into a loss. Santa Fe and ...
Chess960 rapid tournament

Chess960 rapid tournament

RainPiper | Apr 10, 2021
During today's The Hague Saturday Blitz chat, the suggestion came up to have a Chess960 (Fischer Random) live rapid tournament. This is a nice idea, but given that there is limited interest for Chess960, some co-ordination in advance seems advisable. For a nice rapid tournament, we need at least 4 participants. So please let us know in the comments below whether you are interested. My spontaneous suggestion for the specifications is: Friday, 23 april, 20:00 here on chess-com. 4 rounds of 1...
World Cities League: The Hague vs Quebec

World Cities League: The Hague vs Quebec

RainPiper | Mar 26, 2021
In the sixth round of the World Cities League 2021, Division 2A, we play Quebec: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1222870/games Quebec is a regular opponent of ours. Last season, we won 39½-30½ in an interesting and close match. The season before, Quebec had the upper hand. Until now, our results are impressive and promotion to Division 1 is starting to become a realistic option. Perhaps we'll have a genuine final in the last league match against Santa Fe. -- But first, le...

In the fifth round of the World Cities League 2021, Division 2A, we play Bratislava: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1210278/games Bratislava is an old acquaintance of ours. We have played two friendly matches: lost in 2018 and won in 2019. This is our first league match. Let's hope that we can continue our great season so far.

Cities World Cup: The Hague vs Prague

Cities World Cup: The Hague vs Prague

RainPiper | Jan 28, 2021
In the round of 16 of the Cities World Cup 2021 we play Prague: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1204124/games Prague has been a regular opponent of ours lately. In the CWC 2019, we lost by a considerable margin, in last year's World Cities League, we were almost able to catch them. In any case a nice opponent, so let's give it another try. Prague has a lot of players with widely ranging rating, so there should be a suitable opponent for everyone! Here is the complete list...
World Cities League: The Hague vs Beograd

World Cities League: The Hague vs Beograd

RainPiper | Jan 20, 2021
In the fourth round of the World Cities League 2021, Division 2A, we play Belgrade: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1201536/games Belgrade is a team we meet regularly, with changing results. In 2019 we scored a 32-26 win, last season, we lost 21½-34½. So, in a way, it's our turn again. In any case, it would be nice to gather more than the 28 players each we had last season. So far, our start into the 2021 season has been perfect (see live ranking below). Santa Fe and Novo...
World Cities League: The Hague vs Zagreb

World Cities League: The Hague vs Zagreb

RainPiper | Dec 23, 2020
In the third round of the World Cities League 2021, Division 2A, we play Zagreb: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1193386/games We've had a good start into the 2021 season. Both against Sydney and Toronto we are leading and will very likely be winning. This places us in the top together with Santa Fe and Novosibirsk (see ranking below). Zagreb is leading against Bratislava and trailing against Belgrade, so it's certainly a strong opponent, but not a team we need to fear. T...
