South Shields Chess Club will reach the Ron Evers Final 2015

The Ron Evers Rapid Play Chess Tournament  is an annual competition held by the Durham County Chess Association and it members . This year South Shields fielded 3 teams  of 4 players .  Both the A and the B  teams have managed to get in the Semi Final and will be facing each for the pleasure of playing against Durham A , probably the strongest team in the competition in terms of individual grading points .

Fortunately the competition is a  Team Handicap , with the average grade of each team taken into account and then a handicap applied according to the difference between the average ratings .  The teams play two 30 minute games against each other , one black and one white .

The South Shields Semi Final is due to be played shortly  so look out for the result.
