Despite COVID, Woodbridge Chess Club have had a terrific start to the season, leading Division 2 of the Suffolk League with 14 points out of a possible 20. Our closest rivals Bury B are on 8 points from 20 and, although a number of teams have matches in hand, promotion to Division 1 seems more and more likely. Particular congratulations go to Dan Such who has won all his games so far despite being considerably outgraded. In November, Woodbridge also won the U6000 East Anglian Chess Union Team Championship with Sam Gaffney and Harry Elman completing hattricks. Not bad for the youngest club in Suffolk!

Woodbridge Chess Club meets for fun and competitive games at 7pm, on Wednesdays, in the Cherry Tree Inn. We are keen to welcome new players and help them improve. And to that end, see if you can solve this month’s puzzle taken from Rowan Kent – Sam Gaffney, EACU Team Championship 2021:
