Welsh International Open

The Chess Player's Alice

Austin Lockwood  Saturday, February 1, 2020

The Clergy Correspondence Chess Club have released The Chess Player's Alice, by The Reverend Ivor Davies (1923-2005).

Ivor Davies was the Vicar of Hay-on-Wye for nearly 20 years, and was a Canon of Brecon Cathedral.  He was the founder of the CCCC in 1967, and the club continues to this day. The Chess Player's Alice is a whimsical analysis of the famous chess game from Lewis Carol's Alice through the Looking-Glass.

Attendees at the Llandudno ICCF Congress may recognise the book from their delegate packs.

The book can be obtained from The Rev'd. Bruce Carlin, email: [email protected] for £4.00 (or £3.50 for WCCF members).

British Correspondence Championship 2018/20

Austin Lockwood  Monday, January 27, 2020

The 2018/20 BCCC completed recently; another outstanding performance by Praveen Kumar Rallabandi (9.5/14), a player surely destined for a stellar career in CC, ensured that he retained the title.  Second and third were Brian Thompson and yours truly, separated only by the controversial Baumbach tiebreak.

The British Championship is the premium individual CC event in the UK and is organised jointly by the national federations of Wales, Scotland and England. British players of all levels are encouraged to enter.
