Unfortunately, we didn’t have our best day. Only Massimo and Werner managed to bring some points through draw, resulting to a 5:1 loss against a strong opposing team. Nevertheless, it was a nice and didactic chess evening!

News about chess at Letzi

Hopefully, you had a good start into 2021 and you are healthy!

It is still not possible to meet for chess over the board in our venue GZ Bachwiesen. We might be able to offer kids training under certain restrictions, but this is under clarification at the moment.

Unfortunately, the Swiss Chess Federation had to cancel the first round of the SGM light and it is under discussion whether the remaining can be played or not: http://www.swisschess.ch/sgm.html

Because of this I would like to call your attention to our team on lichess.org!
Roger will continue to organize tournaments in 2021 on this platform as well – please support him on this and let him know which time control and modus you would prefer: Blitz or Rapid, with or without increment, Arena or Swiss style…
The leagues in the Swiss Team Battle are getting stronger and stronger and after competing for quite some time in L2 we suddenly find ourselves there in the 4th!
On January 26th we will continue with a time control of 5+3: https://lichess.org/tournament/1U03mBzC
Please register in time, the more players for Letzi the better!

Christmas Newsletter

Dear Chess Friends,

The year is now slowly coming to an end and even though the situation is recently not developing so positively, I hope that you are healthy and can spend the holidays with family and friends!

Because of the restrictions of the GZ Bachwiesen and the Bundesrat/BAG, we cannot meet in our venue until January 22nd. However, until then we have at least some online chess on the agenda, starting with a rapid tournament in arena style on lichess:

Over Christmas and new Year there is again a Swiss Team Battle, this time we start in league 3 (time control 5+0):

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a – especially healthy – Happy New Year 2021!

All the best
Roland Löhr
