My new chess club and first success

3 Comments

as usual news are coming so late on my blog… better check out my fanpage https://www.facebook.com/chesscoaching where everything is more up to date!

At the beginning of September I took part in 2nd Seniors League (in Jastrzębia Góra) with the team ‘Wieża Pęgów’. This is the first time I represented this club and I’m very happy we finished on a second place which is good enough to be promoted into the 1st league next year!

My personal result was unfortunately far from satisfactory. I started very well (4,5/6 and I nicely beat one GM with Black)  but somehow I lost three last rounds which was a disaster for me but hopefully our team having won 6 first matches didn’t need too much to secure our main goal 🙂

I would like to thank my all teammates and our boss from ‘Wieża Pęgów’, next year we are going to do our best in the 1st league!

Overdue tournament reports

Again, I didn’t write here for some time even though I played two tournaments! Somehow I was unable to find time for blogging… In August I played in Prague and you can find some short summary on my twitter. By the way I encourage you to follow me there 😛

On Sunday I finished my second tournament, 2nd Polish League. I was playing on the 1st board for my team Gostmat Gostynin and I had quite strong opponents. This time I had rather bad start (although I must admit my opponents played very well in those games) but later I recovered a bit winning two nice miniatures(!) and all in all my result wasn’t bad 🙂

Link to detailed results: http://chessarbiter.com/turnieje/2015/tdr_4099/results.html?l=pl&tb=202_ My team was 9th but we were very unlucky to play against best team in the last round which we lost terribly… Had we won the last round we would have been promoted to the 1st League.

I’m pretty sure you would like to see some more comments strictly related to my games on this blog so…

…I promise to give 1 highlight from my latest games soon!

You can leave some suggestions in the comments 😉
