The Pitstop

Does anyone have contact details for the Team Manager / Captain of

The Pitstop?

http://www.4ncl.co.uk/team_captains.htm does not help.

Re: K Kings 1 Question

Looking at

http://www.4ncl.co.uk/team_captains.htm

It would appear that "K Kings 2" is the name of the squad rather than a team.

I presume that if K Kings 2 had a second team it would be called

K Kings 2 2

Perhaps Desmond could become their Honorary President ?

Maybe the '2' is part of the name? :shock:
It would appear not.

Is it possible that KJCA Kings are the first team and K Kings 2 are the second team? Maybe not, as KJCA Kestrels seem to be the second team.
I don't think so.

Both KJCA Kings and K Kings each have their own team lists.

Re: K Kings 1 Question

So K Kings have entered their second team but not their first team ?

Excuse me for being stupid.

K Kings 1 Question

Can anyone tell me who K Kings 1 are paired with for round one and round two ?

I can see the pairings for K Kings 2.

I've asked Matthew Carr and Dave Thomas the same question but have had no reply from either.

Thanks.

Trivial Question

I should know this but I have forgotten....

What are the rules that determine colour choice for a given match?

Does the "away" team have white on odd numbered boards for example?

Thanks for your help.

Tried to find this on the 4NCL web site but failed.

Re: Chess history trivia

Apparently, and this is news to me, WL was allegedly the first player to be described as a Grandmaster of the game. Maybe they meant Grand Master?

Anyone know more about this ?

Re: 43rd Guernsey International Chess Festival 15-21/10/17

Forgive me for being dim but do we know the reason for the 1-0 in the game

Sedgwick - Dilleigh ?

Black looks to have a minimal edge where the result is given as 1-0.

Is this a mobile telephone default or fire alarm incident of some nature ?
