Follow the first leg of the Rapid Championship on Vega:
Rapid Championship 1st Leg
This is followed by the Autumn Tournament, starting on April 24th. Please sign up for that in advance, either on the sheet on the noticeboard or by email. Daniel Johns will be running the first round - please help him by entering early so we can set the Vega files up in advance and start promptly on the night.
Please email Helen: firstname.lastname@example.org. Unrated players will be given an estimated rating for pairing purposes. Check the Schedule link for more details.
House-keeping notes: there is no longer a $1 playing fee on Wednesdays. There is no coffee break but you can make yourself tea, coffee or Milo at any time. Use the mugs provided and put them into the dishwasher when you have finished. There will be biscuits!
Here is an entertaining queen sac from the second round of the Rapid, and also some information on how to win R+B v R for the benefit of certain other players in round 2!

This resulted in a very narrow win for the President's team!
