Chess at Emsworth is getting more popular. 20 players + 3 parents last night. We welcomed Charlie Hylaridef (14) visiting from the Delft chess club (De Delftsche SchaakClub) . And first time attendee Simon Roberts: ex-Portsmouth chess club.

Paul was our D'Artagnan drawing two games. Ed had a stone cold draw against GM Gawain Jones but got suckered into a knight and rook mating net. I had good positions in all three games which were interesting but blundered.

Paul Northcott drew both games he played - with FIDE Master Harry Grieve and International Master Nigel Povah.

An event with 125 boards stretching right down the high street. Congratulations Guildford Chess Club on staging such a great event.

All the masters taking part...

Ex-Emsworth Chess Club player Paul Cooper was assisting IM Matthew Wadsworth. Unfortunately, I only saw that after the event.

Somehow we missed each other, but it was busy!
