We are always pleased to welcome players into the "GM Club". Here we have Paul Scott's first result against Matjaz Pirs!

What is nice to see is the level of moves not directly anticipated by engines!

Team Captain Report: British CC Team Championship 2017

Russell Sherwood  Sunday, October 14, 2018

The (Non-national) Y Dreigiau Cymreig team have achieved a dominant and almost unassailable position with a score of 11/16 with 6 wins and 10 draws.

A close examination of the remaining games shows the mathematical possibility of BCCA Capablanca and Trophy Hunters overhauling them to be remote and defaults look not to be able to interfere with the true result.
