RAC Chess Annual Dinner

The RAC held their chess annual dinner last week, which saw nearly all the Hamilton Russell clubs in attendance.

A wonderful evening, during which the MCC collected the Hamilton Russell trophy for 2014/15, was rounded off with a simultaneous display from GM Julian Hodgson.

Many thanks to Richard Friis-Olsen, who provided the majority of the photos below.

MCC win against RAC and take the title

Last night, the MCC won away from home against the RAC 2-4. They also won the friendly boards 2-3.

The result left the MCC at the top of the table with a 100% record and, even though the RAC still have a game in hand, certain winners of the Hamilton Russell league in the 2014/5 season. Congratulations to them!

It also means that the Oxford & Cambridge Club have secured either 2nd or joint 2nd place.
