November 9th – endgame competitions – all welcome!

The Club Endgame Competition (“Endgame Maestro“) starts on November 9th at Corduff, 8pm. This is held over four Wednesdays and will finish in December. Upwards of 20 clubs players are expected to play so it will be a busy and enjoyable event!

It is held at Corduff and is open to all our players, young and old, and any guests who wish to visit us. There is no entry fee but there are prizes for our club members which will be awarded by Stefan (Senior Club leader) at Christma party!

Endgame talks by senior players

The games will normally start at 8pm. Just before each round a senior player will give a short talk on the particular endgame that we are all about to face, to help a general discussion. This will provide really useful information for the games immediately ahead so it is worthwhile to be there at 7.45pm!

Many thanks to Randolf, Stefan, Luke and John for volunteering to give these short endgame introductions. It is much appreciated.
