Martin’s Column  During the British Championships,Martin Simons not only played in the Championship itself, he somehow found time to write a daily commentary on how Dorset players were faring, with games analysis as well

Bashing the Birds  Martin assesses the potential of the relatively unknown Birds Opening, also known as the Nimzo-Larsen

Improve your Chess  An article with tips to improve performance, reproduced the International Chess School

See the Poole Chess website for the fascinating story behind Steve Bailey's visually impaired Barbados cricket tour during July '18. The Poole club ran fund raising activities to enable Steve to take part as Head Coach. The tour was a huge success!
