Whilst we are currently on our post season summer break, some members have been getting their chess fix playing on the online format.
Generally speaking most of these games are 5 minute affairs and as such can be wildly less accurate but also more entertaining from a neutral’s perspective then games played at the longer format!
The anonymous nature of online play also allows a more uninhibited style of play and every now and then the least of us can produce a game to be proud of.
Here are a short selection of games sent to me by members this month. If you would like your game to be included in the next edition send them to my inbox!
