This week saw the last Hamilton Russell game by Oxford & Cambridge’s top board Terry Chapman. He will be a great loss to the community. Many of of his fine games are in our games database.
Terry himself has kindly annotated his last game: Terry Chapman v Adam Eckersley Waites – it’s well worth a look, particularly Terry’s last comment!
Meanwhile there is a changing of the guard at the O&C with Nigel White taking over from Peter Webster as Cup Captain. Peter has been a great servant to chess at the O&C and we look forward to his continued involvement as a player.
And yet more news from the O&C. Congratulations to Tam Freestone Bayes, who two weeks ago became a father to Athena! Congratulations to Tam!

Just a quick note that we have a new page in the menu at the top of the site for Hamilton Russell games that links to games (often analysed by the players).
Please do send your games in so that we can gradually build our collection.
