Our thanks go to Richard and Ben for taking on all comers at last night’s simial, and thanks to all those who attended to make a great evening of chess.

Ben managed to win all his matches giving him a perfect 6-0 score, while Richard conceded two games to Jesse Campbell and myself giving him a score of 4-2.
