With all matches in both the Suffolk League and the Bury Area League completed for the first half of the season, there are now no further league matches until 5 January, when matches in the Suffolk League re-commence. The BACL starts again on 11 January.
It’s good to see that all the Suffolk League’s three divisions are being fiercely competed, with no one team dominating.
Just after Christmas there are two events which will feature some Suffolk players. Adam Taylor has entered the Hastings Masters and Ed Player is also hoping to play. The London Junior Championships are held immediately after Christmas and several youngsters from Bury will be playing.
So, with Christmas just around the corner, here is the plan for the next few days:
Sunday (tomorrow) – Half-time review of the Bury Area Chess League
Monday to Wednesday – Games from the Suffolk League (or something else if none is available!)
Thursday to Sunday – Christmas puzzles
Readers are requested to send me any interesting games or positions, for publication next week. Please don’t be modest!
Starting Christmas Eve (Thursday) there will be a tough puzzle to solve each day, until Sunday. I will then be on holiday and there will be no further articles until 6 January.
