    Sounds fantastic, do you have any idea of how many Burnie Chess Club members may be involved in this as well?

    I'd guess those who live in Ulverstone mainly - we'll see. There's likely a couple of players who can't make it to Burnie who can make it Mondays to Devonport.

    Lenard Lange won the inaugural Lightning on 5.5 / 6, with Denis McMahon 2nd. on 5. 7 Players on the first night - which is encouraging.

    Looks like 4 too many results (4 rounds / 8 players should = 16 results?)
    James was probably drawing our game but blundered in time trouble. I thought Ben Ivory showed a lot of promise for a newcomer.

    I would say the only blunder was getting into time-trouble. Exchanging into that rook endgame didn' matter as i only had 10 seconds left.
    Is anyone willing to play as black in the Cochrane Gambit?

    A picket fence (7/7) for Denis in the Allegro - with David 2nd on 6; Lenard 3rd on 5 and James 4th on 4. Thanks Chespoter - look forward to meeting you over the Board. Not sure why no Horton's yet, James - but i hope they can find the time. I think Russell might have tennis or something on Mondays.
