Tromso Chess Olympiad approaches

The FIDE Chess Olympiad starts on August 2nd.

We have teams in both sections – the Opens event and the Women’s event.

Our Women’s team is in board order Jovanka Houska, Sue Maroroa, Sabrina Chevannes, Akshaya Kalaiyalahan and Ann-Marie James. The team captain is Stuart Conquest.

The team has been quite active recently with Jovanka and Sabrina playing in the Politiken Cup in Denmark and Akshaya playing in the British Championships.

A few weeks ago the team met for a weekend get together at the RAC in London. This was a great success in bringing team members together, playing a few rapid games and analysing with Stuart Conquest. We thank the RAC for their support. Thanks to Sheldon Marshall of the RAC for the team photographs.

A one-off screening of Andrei Bujalski’s acclaimed film ‘Computer Chess’ is taking place on Tuesday 29 July at the Pickle Factory, located opposite Oval Space, 13-14 The Oval, London E2 9DT, starting at  8.30 pm (doors open 7.30 pm).

ECF members can book tickets at the discounted price of £5: to reserve a seat please e-mail the organiser at vp@ovalspace.co.uk , quoting your membership number and then turn up and pay at the door.

The film has received a very good reception at film festivals: it is set over the course of a weekend tournament for computer chess programmers in the 1980s.

Further information and a film trailer can be found here.
