Round Four of the LCCC 2014 Summer League

League Action is fun for everyone at LCCC!

Another exciting evening of league chess as twenty-two players were on hand for the action. Several casual games were played also.

But in League play;
The Red Dragons defeated the 1st place Gamma Rays 3 – 1 and that leaves the door open for 300 Spartans to take control of the league lead if they defeat the Gamma Rays next week! The 300 Spartans had a bye this week.

It’s Your Move defeated the Unnamed Team 3 – 1 and tying them with the Red Dragons for 3rd place. Two games in this match lasted the full 2 hours and both ended in hard fought draws. Well done players.

Two intense games - both ending in draws! 
Next week the Four Aces will play the Unnamed Team. A victory for the Aces will put them in sole possession of 2nd place, and the Aces have a match in hand!

The match of the week next week is 300 Spartans vs The Red Dragons. A must win for the Dragons and a possible league clincher for the Spartans!

Great excitement at LCCC. Stop by and be a part of it next Monday. Full League standings on the right side of the blog.

Here is a puzzle. Answer to be given in the comments in a few days.

Black to move and win in three moves.
Good luck!
