Re: Division Four South 2016-17

Could it be that this weekend, which co-insides with school half term in some areas, cause some absentees? I am losing one of my regular juniors for this very reason. On another subject, is it just me that can't view them, or is there a problem with the pgn files for Div 3 & Div 4 south from week 2?...

Problems with viewing games on Chessbase

Has anyone else noticed this? In the last 24 hours on the Chessbase website when trying to play through games a message appears alongside the board (where the moves normally appear) 'You must have JavaScript enabled to replay this game' I have checked to make sure that I hadn't inadvertently changed...

Re: Further Software Update

Hi Carl, Have just connected to Forum for first time since the upgrades this week and I can't see the board diagrams properly. No one else seems to have commented so wondering what I'm missing? Do I need to upgrade anything myself? Any example of the problem you are having? I tried a new one and ev...

Does anyone know if this meeting took place?

Appearances can be deceptive, the strength of the teams were practically the same with an average grade of 179.38 against Somerset and 179.31 against Nottinghamshire.
