Welcome to the Brighton & Hove Chess Club LMS Home Page

The deadline for all competitive games will be the end of July, as it stands. Upon review this may be extended to the end of August. Please, make every effort to play all games by the end of July.

I can highly recommend joining the ECF for those players who have not already done so. The ECF provides the grading service for all games played on this site. Bronze membership can be obtained for as little as £18 for twelve months. ECF englishchess.org.uk .

Congratulations to Luke Rutherford for taking outright first in the Club Championship for this season. He has a score of 7/7. His score cannot be equaled.
Current standings in the Tasker Tankard are Anthony Stanton 6/6, Dona Strauss 5/6, Susan Chadwick 4/6, for the top three spots. This is unlikely to change. However two entrants may make a late start and could theoretically Figure in the top three spots if they play a large number of games between now and the end of July. These two players are Brian Green and Edi Fietkkau. Watch this space...
