Re: BEWARE – Chess Coaching Scams

Hi all, Since I am the author of this post, I thought I would make a contribution here. The main thing I am referring to is the situation in London where there are chess teachers in schools, not school teachers who teach chess, but external chess teachers, who charge a ridiculous amount of money and...

Re: British Championships Tenders sought

Lara - are you doing your website yourself? Because it is quite easy to learn with the base that you already have set up. I learnt how to do it in one day, with very little prior knowledge and got my new website up and running within 3 days. Again, mine needs a bit of work, but it is functional. If ...

Re: Draft Junior Selection Policy for 2012

Richard makes a good point here. Surely we should be thinking about what is best for the juniors? Those who are strong enough will want to (and should) play in the British Championships and Major Open. I think that having a FIDE rating at the World and European Youth is really beneficial as it puts ...

Re: England vs India Junior Match

I am actually hoping to put the top 4 in the auditorium (just because I think it's pretty cool to play up there) and the other 5 in the VIP room.

Just hope the Classic guys hurry up with their games today :)

They did lost 6.5-1.5 but the result does not reflect the games. Ravi drew to a 2213 with Black in t...
