Last night saw the final match of the 2012/13 season with The Reform away from home defeating Roehampton in a friendly 0-6.
Congratulations to Richard Hall who has just finished second in the World Correspondence Chess Final – the highest ever placed British player in a World Championship Final.
Richard plays for The Reform in the Hamilton-Russell Cup.
Please let us know of any other HR players in the news!
Raymond Keene’s column in The Times today (Thursday) featured a cracking Hamilton-Russell Cup game between Peter Lee of The Athenaeum and Nigel Povah of the RAC.
It was great to see a note that the opening followed a game by the same two players in the Yorkshire League back in 1971!
Brooks at home to The Reform drew 1.5 – 1.5
This week we had yet another 3 all draw in a friendly. This time between the Athenaeum (home) and Oxford & Cambridge (away).
Chelsea Arts at home to Roehampton earned a 3-3 draw in the only friendly fixture of the week.
Congratulations to the RAC, who won their game last night against The Athenaeum by 6 boards to 1 and consequently win the Hamilton Russell Cup 2012/13 outright.
The MCC were one point away in second and Oxford & Cambridge took third place.
