THOMSON CC CHESS CLUB 2011

Another new year beckons. We intend to have a good program of tournaments and league games spread throughout the months for all our members, young and young at heart.

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP

The Thomson CC Club Championship would tentatively be held at Thomson CC Hall , 194 Upper Thomson Road on Sunday 23 January 10am. Entry forms shall be released on this blog and on the SCF Website upon approval. You join the club by paying for a full year membership and play the tournament for free! Prizes are awarded. Lunch provided too.

THOMSON CUP INTERNATIONAL

 The 5th THOMSON CUP International shall be tentatively be held on 28-29 May, traditionally the last weekend of May. Format remains at 1 hr per side, 7 rounds Swiss.


WEEKLY  ENDGAME LEAGUE   JANUARY - APRIL

 We shall be starting our Junior Endgame League where they get to replay famous endgames of the masters, specially chosen such that the position is only slightly superior for the winning side. Those taking the inferior side shall score 1.5 pts if they win and 0.5 pts if they lose. The stronger side scores 1 pt for a win and 0 pt for a loss. Each player gets to play the same endgame twice, as White and Black.

The time control for each game is 25 minutes a side. This takes place every Friday evening during our session and starts 8pm, ending about 940pm. What better way to learn about the endgame but to recreate the winning plans of the masters and improve your endgame strength?
