Twenty-Four Chess Players for League Night – 012516

Just another great night of chess at LCCC.

We had a full house of players tonight! Thank you to everyone who made it out on a cold rainy January evening. But it was a perfect temperature and lighting indoors for the chess action!

We had four league games played, plenty of casual games and even some chess lessons.

We welcomed four new players to the club tonight. 
It was great to have Owen, Hunter, Martin and Bill join us for chess this evening. Now don’t any of you be strangers.

In league action, The Owls were able to slow down the 49’ers freight train and held the match to a draw. - 1.5 - 1.5.

The other match between the Flyers and the Tigers will have to be concluded next week, but the Tigers are winning 1 - 0, and need to win to stay on the 49'ers tail.

Congratulations to Mike N, Tom H and Nick D on their victories, while Don J and Paul M drew their game.
White to move and win!

And now an endgame puzzle. 

White to move and win!

This is from an actual game played in a tournament in Buenos Aires in 1960 where a little known player - IM Robert Wade defeats the great Grand Master Victor Korchnoi with a shot out of nowhere!
