Our chess club offers players the opportunity to take part in ten second a move mayhem once a year. Almost every game involves major errors, especially as the game advances. In practice you have only a few seconds to select a move and hope it doesn’t lose!

I am pleased to report this club chess player tied for first place in the group stages but sadly did not proceed to the final rounds having lost to his rival in the first round.

This game led to an interesting position and is far from flawless from either side – it was ten seconds each after all!
