Another rousing Chess session in the library this afternoon. Bushira Karim and Azhara Miller brought their enthusiastic band of young players again, two of whom had distinguished themselves in a Junior Tournament in Leeds over the weekend. We were also joined by Joanna Kromka who has been playing in the league for Darnall and Handsworth. She’s a fierce player of rapid chess as I discovered to my cost! There are plans to expand the session to Burgreave Library (where there is a good-sized room and ten chess sets). First session is planned for January 11th, Friday afternoon at 2.30 p.m.
Here are some pictures of the series play that took place, one of which shows a remarkable stalemate position on a remarkable board.
