First Team Update Feb 9th 2011

We have been priveliged to recently acquire the services of FIDE Master Alex Therrien – what an acquisition for the club.  Despite lacking match practice Alex has already weighed in with 1.5 out 2 (both games with Black); great stuff!

Also worthy of comment is this spectacular finish from Chris Jones in the match against Eastbourne last Monday:

Here is the position after Black has played Bf8 desperately trying to stay alive, try and work out what Chris played in reply....

News from the Mid Sussex Chess League

Reports taken from the Mid Sussex League website:

"Hastings & St Leonards 1   3 - 2   Worthing 1. 
A result that merits a closer look.  Each team fielded a player new to the MSCL.  For Hastings & St Leonards this was Howard Tebbs on board 5.  He is graded 183 and previously played for Hemel Hempstead.  Worthing's team included Alex Therrien on board 2.  Alex was inactive last season, but had been graded 202 in 2009.  Hastings & St Leonards had major grading advantages on each of the bottom 3 boards, but only capitalised on this to the extent of 1½ points. 
David Chilvers shook off a 56 points deficit to secure a draw, while William Graham displayed contempt for a deficit of 79 points to secure a win for Worthing."

"Brighton & Hove 1   2½ - 2½   Worthing 1.  Brighton & Hove 1 enjoyed an average grading advantage of 20 points, but Terry Edmondson, out-graded by 16 points on board 3, secured a draw and Matthew Payne over-came a 17 points disadvantage to win on board 4 to secure the draw for Worthing."

"Lewes 1   2 - 3   Worthing 1.  Teams well matched overall, but Dave Wallis won on board 5 for Worthing despite being out-graded by 21 points. Worthing 1 move to top of the table, but have played at least 2 more matches than any of their nearest rivals."

"Brighton & Hove 3   3 - 2   Worthing 2.  A creditable result for Worthing 2 given that they were out-graded on every board and by an average of 27 points, yet achieved 4 draws."

" Worthing 1   3 - 2   Horsham 1.  Horsham enjoyed a grading advantage on all but top board, and by an average of 10 points overall.  However, wins by Worthing on boards 3 (Terry Edmondson) and 4 (Matthew Payne) against grading deficits of 15 and 13 respectively, secured victory for the home side."

"Worthing 2   1½ - 3½   St Francis & Haywards Heath 1.  Despite being a clear victory for St Francis & Haywards Heath, one win and one draw by Worthing were very creditable, given that they were vastly out-graded on every board."
