Chess 8th September

Yesterday saw the inaugural meeting of “The Hatherleigh Drinking Club with a chess Problem” met at 41 Bridge Street. The eight addicts were keen to get their first fix of chess of the day and the battle began. The afternoon started quietly as the group savoured the first knight move of the day, slowly as their cravings were satisfied they became more relaxed and soon the first cheerful “Mate” rang out. The competition was won by Lawrence while Kath won the wooden Spoon. At which point the more serious addicts wanted more but were soon tempted to concentrate on the drinking. The second meeting of “The Hatherleigh Drinking Club with a Chess Problem” will be 3pm on Saturday 6 th October at 41 Bridge Street.

Looking for the killer move
