BigFooty's second chess match

After our win against The Young Australian Chess Players, it's now time to show The Commonweath what we're made of. Unfortunately rating restrictions mean our best player (Hawkage) is too strong to play for us. However, let's dominate like we usually do at the Commonwealth Games. Signups open until the end of the month with the match starting on 1 October.

Go BigFooty!

Later: (above message was still sitting waiting to be posted)

Great show by EmNinjaBees with a crushing double win against a higher rated opponent. And a good win for Santoz.

Now 6-6.

And the match against the young Aussies is finally over - 34-26 to us. I think this Commonwealth team may be be a stronger opponent but we are going well.

Apropos of nothing in particular... I came across a guy who had 559 (five hundred and fifty nine, in case anyone thinks I accidentally hit the 5 key twice) current games in progress.

The mind boggles.

Some great teamwork, I won my first game. I was ahead in the 2nd game but didn’t want/need to take 3 days a move grinding it out so offered a draw.

BigFooty lead 20-17 with one game to go.

WE WON!

It seemed like it was never going to end, and suddenly it's all over (well not quite) but I think we all deserve a celebratory drink!

Just to say a big thank you for everyone who played, it was a great win against very strong opposition.

We will look to do a Christmas speed tournament, and then look to have another club match next year. Congratulations to you all and have a great festive period!
