The time and date is set for round 1 of the chess.com club's league. Just as in season 1 we will play the Australian Group A derby. We fielded 16 players and we were handed a 21 - 11 drubbing. A score we can hope to improve on this time time around.

The club's league was a highlight of the club's online existence as we were confined to our homes in the Covid-19 lockdowns and it was decided we would continue to compete in season 2. There are some changes however. They have incorporated a blitz match into the weekly line up.

So this is how it works,
- I will post the pairing and event time each week ASAP.
- You will make the appropriate adjustments to your busy schedules to turn up 10 minutes before start time.

-We will enter the rapid and the blitz matches scheduled for the club.  

- We will each play 2 rapid games against our match opponent at time controls of 15 2 

- We will then each play 2 blitz games against our match opponent at time controls of 3 2

- We will then celebrate our wonderful performance win/lose or draw happy.png

There are 38 club's in the league, the top 16 qualify for the play off's

Last season there were 69 clubs and we finished in = 37th place So if most of those club's who are not around for season 2 were better than us then we are a shot for the play off's grin.pnggrin.pnggrin.png

But on a serious note, I hope we find season 2 as enjoyable as we found season 1 and I will see you all on Sunday at 5pm.
