Aidan, Dylan and Joe are the clubs best players, so its no surprise to see them on perfect scores. Scoring by the way is 3 for a win, 2 for a draw, 1 point for a loss and 0 for a no show.
Some of the new players couldn't convert some massive material advantages, or were able to after many moves of shuffling the pieces. The aim over the next few weeks will be checkmating with 2 rooks, or rook and queen and then hopefully the new players will be able to finish off their opponents.
One game I watched arrived at this position.
Play continued 99.Ra7+ Ke6, 100.Ra6+ Ke7 repeat to a draw.
After play had finished I showed them 99.Nd4 Kf7, 100.e6+ and the pawn is marching up the board with ample protection from the knight and rook and it will either promote in a few moves, or cause a mate. e.g. 100...Ke7, 101.Ra7+
When Black has to decide on either allowing mate 101...Ke8, 102.Nf5 or the pawn to queen.
Allowing the kids to play is a good way to see where we need to coach and gives them good experience.
