Online Chess during the current crisis

Meeting up to play will not be an option for at least three weeks, and quite possibly much longer.  So it looks like online chess will provide us with opportunities to keep playing and not let our wonderful chess community become dormant.

Fortunately Oliver Brennan of Rotherham CC has been proactive and has organised an online tournament.  Full instructions on what to do can be found at https://rotherham.cc/online-championship.html

I have had a few thoughts regarding online chess recently.  How about posting more online games on the site to raise awareness of what and who is out there.  Maybe we could have a virtual club night. Same time on a Tuesday evening but with games played from the comfort of our living rooms.

All thoughts around making online chess between Sheffield players a real thing are most welcome.

Best of luck to everyone and really looking forward to the day we can get back to our normal league games and club nights.
