Up Next - The Club Championship!!

Casual night saw a dozen players come out and enjoy a fine presentation on the power of passed pawns by Daniel Smith. After the entertaining and informative lecture a Blitz tournament broke out among six players. Paul Farb was in rare form as he posted a perfect 5-0 to take clear first ahead of Kyle Oody, Joerg Lohse and Gil Holmes who all finished 3-2.
