Hobsons Bay cup – round 3

A word from our President Steve Hogan:

As advertised, juniors will start back from next week. There is therefore some additional set up time required each evening. I’ll be at the hall from around 5.30 on Tuesdays, if some people are around to assist myself and Casey with set up that will be terrific.

COVID rules relaxed for next week

As from midnight this Friday 22nd April, the rules around COVID are being relaxed. Vaccination status will no longer need to be shown to enter indoor venues, like our chess club.

Therefore, showing evidence of vaccine status will no longer be a requirement for entering the club from this coming Tuesday (26th April). The club will be open to all, regardless of vaccination status, just in time for the start of the Hobsons Bay Cup (7 rounds, 7 weeks).

Time to saddle up!

Yes, the break is over, the holidays but a distant memory, the wait is over, now it is time for chess at Hobsons Bay once again! So saddle up, and get along to the club in Altona on Tuesdays for 7:30pm chess.

The club is having a casual night tomorrow to ease (no saddle sores!) yourself into the chess again. Gidday up!saddle

Hobsons Bay Cup round 3

After 2 rounds, only 5 players have a perfect score, and 4 of them they played each other this week. The results are below. Nathan’s position against Dean looked like swiss cheese after only a few moves, and it went downhill after that. My game against Tony did see-saw a bit, but I was a piece ahead but then carelessly lost my pawns under time pressure, and it was then R+B vs R and 2Ps and so a draw was a fitting result.
