We will use part of the regular Zoom session next week (July 29th) to hold the AGM. Please let Jonathan know any items you wish to raise. At the moment we have only one, which is to capture opinions on the format of league matches next season, ideally with the aim of forming a club preference. If you have views in advance on this, or any other topic, do let me know and I can add them to the agenda.
We will have a regular club meeting tomorrow (July 22nd).
In the following position, played in the Berkshire League in 2018, Mark has a nice attacking position. But can you find the forcing sequence of moves that leads either to mate or a large win of material?
As usual, we will be meeting online this week (Wednesday 27th), please see Jonathan’s email for details.
The format will be similar to last week’s, where everyone is invited to bring an interesting game or position to show. Jonathan has promised to show “amazing game to show which should provoke some interesting comments and analysis”.
Here is a variation from a game of game of Mark’s played in 2012. There are two or three moves with which Mark, playing with the black pieces, would keep the advantage, but there is one which clearly wins.
