Richard’s latest book review, of From Ukraine with Love for Chess, a book raising money for Ukrainian charities, has recently been published here. There will be more reviews coming shortly.

Richard’s latest chess history post features Peter Shenele, a police inspector who played a correspondence match against Kingston-on-Thames Chess Club in 1881.

Talking about Kingston, our pre-season events include a friendly match over 16 boards against Kingston at their venue, the Willoughby Arms on Monday 5 September. If you’re interested in playing please contact Sampson Low.

Our membership is now up to 66: before the pandemic we had about 35 members. An amazing increase: well done to everyone and welcome to our new members! If you have any friends who might be interested in joining it would be great to welcome them to the Adelaide!
