Tarik has entered an excellent LMS report on last night’s Bacchus League encounter, which fulfilled all the original intentions – friendly, competitive and giving emerging and less experienced members the chance to play league chess, without being heavily out-graded.
Phil Wallace, County Grader, has approved these games being included for grading, providing each player has at least an hour on the clock. Moves should also be recorded.
The original idea for a league like Bacchus came from Wimborne’s Mike Davidson. Mike rightly commented that neither of the lowest leagues of County and B&DCL was suitable for low or ungraded players, who wanted to play league chess against opponents of similar strength to themselves.
