New Chess Season

#23 "Rookie": Irish News 5th October 1983

The new chess season is now under way, heralded by the first three rounds of the Williamson Shield last weekend at Queen's University Students Union. The final three rounds take place this Saturday, Also the three Belfast and District Leagues are just swinging into action and regular reports will be featuring the league tables in this column.

Welcome to our new Southern readers, especially around Dublin, who now find it easier to obtain this newspaper. I hope you find the "Chess Corner" different from rival chess columns in two ways:

First, it attempts not only to inform but also interest the reader

Secondly, each week it features an up-to-the-minute local game, often between fairly average players, as opposed to foreign, top-level games featured elsewhere. As Leinster has far more players than Ulster, I hope you eager band of Southern players read this column regularly - your game might be published next.

Grandmaster draws are usually dull, but not so this week's exciting tussle between two ordinary players in the recent Bangor one day Senior event. Incidentally we are used to King's and Queen's in chess but despite his name and club, the Dublin player is not Lord Lucan.
