We have another game in the best game competition.
There are now 5 games in the competition
Nontheless, there is still time to send in your entry.
In the Under 90 Chris fox of Banbury knocked out Kenilworth's Tony King
to set up a final with Olton's Paul Kelly, who beat Peter Leggett in his semi-final.
John Green of Solihull has reached the Under 120 final after beating Peter Stiff of Stratford.
In the Under 150 Neil Staples beat Andy Johnson to reach the final.
At last, we have 2 entries in the best game competition.
However, as they are from the same person, unless we get some more entries,
the winner will be a forgone conclusion.
So, please, send some more entries in.
As yet, no one has entered any games for the best game prize.
Some of you must have played a game that they thought was quite good.
If you have, then send your entry (or entries) to me, preferably in pgn format.
If I don't receive any entries I will be forced to enter one of my own games - and that's no idle threat.
I have just been informed of the sad news that David Hodgkins of the Leamington club died last night.
David has been a huge part of Leamington Chess Club and the Leamington League for a very long time
and will be deeply missed by his many friends.
His passion for Chess and his values, integrity and good humour always shone through in everything that he did.
He never let any of the challenges he faced stop him from living his life to the full.
He was a true Chess player.
We have no other details at this stage, but will advise when we know what the funeral arrangements are.
Rest in Peace David.
