Cambrils Xmas Charity Match

The Cambrils Chess Club organized a Marathon Charity match during the Christmas break. Between 40 to 50 people attended the event at the Nou Espantall bar, of all age groups and with a healthy mix of genders too. The standards of play varied equally from earnest beginner, through keen club players, to chess masters.

For club players this is probably a fairly common format, but for me I played more games of chess in one night than I’d played in the entire previous year, so it was a bit of an eye opener. Entertaining and difficult at the same time. The evening saw me desperately try to avoid being given the wooden spoon, and I just scraped in at second to last place. Clearly there is work to be done, and I look forward to it. 🙂

Prizes were given at the end to the best in each age group. Chess enthusiasts of all skill levels are welcome to join us on the Costa Daurada chess circuit.
