South Potteries Chess Challenge Cup

Fenton retained the South Potteries Chess Challenge Cup with a comprehensive 6.5 - 3.5 win against Meir last night. However, considering the grade differences on all boards it was a very good performance by Meir, particularly on the top two boards where, against all the odds, they won both games. This was the 15th match in the series, stretching back to 2004. Fenton currently lead by 9 - 6.

Club Championship

The Club Championship is now moving to a conclusion with 4 players, myself, Ray, Petru and Max, all level on 3 points from 4 matches and Kas just half a point behind. The 5th round is due to be played on the 8th October and, depending upon the results, a play-off may be necessary on the 29th October. Indeed, it may even be necessary to play a 6th round to separate the players and might even need a play-off after that.
