Endgame training and Blitz tournament at 15th March

We started at 18:30 with endgame training, based on the book 100 Endgames that you must know. We looked at the endgames 10 until 12 which are about tricky situation of Knight versus a pawn.

At 19:30 we had a Blitz tournament.

SMM game analysis and Blitz tournament

After almost a month, we met yesterday again at GZ Bachwiesen. During the first 30 minutes, until 20:00 we analysed two games from Monday that were played in the context of SMM. Roger had a long game (almost 70 moves!) against a strong opponent. Chris on the other hand reached a very sharp position quickly.

After the game analysis, we played a Blitz tournament. The time control was 5 min. + 3 sec/move. Jaroslaw won convincingly the first place, having beaten all of his opponents.

Almost at the same time, we had an online presence. Some strong players from our club chose to participate to the Swiss L3 Team Battle. The team, despite being one player short, did quite well.

On the coming Tuesday, we plan to play again at the GZ Bachwiesen. We hope to see you there.
