Season 2015/16

 
#Internal Competitions  
   

 

A Club for enthusiasts of any standard who enjoy playing serious or friendly chess in a thoroughly sociable atmosphere.

 

The club reopened on 16th September 2015 and meets every Wednesday, 6.30 p.m. till 10.30 p.m. at The Haven Centre, Broad Lane Tiverton, up to and including the last Wednesday in May 2016 (excluding 30th December 2015).

There are excellent playing conditions with the use of a convenient refreshments corner, a lounge area in which to relax between games, and an analysis room.  An added attraction is a large free car park.

On 23rd September the club champion, Brian Hewson, gave the traditional simultaneous display, conceding only a draw to Ivor Annetts, and on 30th September lead a coaching/general discussion session on pawn structures and endgames. Club competitions are now well underway.  Results thus far are contained within the attached tables.

Results for the club’s internal competitions for the 2014/15 season were as follows:

Championship: First - Brian Hewson (7½/9); Second – Ivor Annetts (7/9);   3. Keith Atkins (4/4) & Gregor Fotheringham (4/6)

Rapidplay: First – Brian Hewson (24/26); Second – Ivor Annetts (19/23);  Brian Aldwin (14/24)

The 2014/15 season was reasonably successful for the club.  It won both the DCCA Rooke Cup, beating Exeter by 6 – 2 in the final, and the Moyle Cup.  It also came within a whisker of winning the Newman Rapidplay competition, failing to take the title by one point in the final match against Exmouth.

In the Exeter and District League the club, with a weakened team, again performed poorly in the Premiership.  It also did not do well in the Championship division.  But in the newly devised Handicap Rapidplay it finished just one point behind the winners, Exeter Prestissimo.

For the 2015/16 season the club has entered the following DCCA competitions: Bremridge, Mamhead, Schofield, Moyle, Peter Rooke Knockout Cup and the Newman Rapidplay.  It has also entered the Exeter and District League’s Championship and Handicap Rapidplay competitions.
