Correspondence Team Update

Correspondence Chess

Hampshire have climbed to 3rd in the top flight having completed 14 of our 16 games. The leaders are Warwickshire and  Yorkshire on 8pts with both having 3 games to finish. Hampshire look to have secured a place in the top level for next season although results could still go against us with several teams having quite a few results to come in.

The team for 2017 are listed with a link to their games being played on the ICCF Webserver.  Each pairing features two games against the same opponent. The full Division One table may be seen here.

Correspondence Chess is an excellent way to study chess and Hampshire players wishing to represent the County may contact the Correspondence Team Captain Phil Barber for further information.  Games are usually played online via the ICCFF Webserver though at times other opportunities may arise.  The days of postal chess are not completely gone but today you will find postal games are mainly offered by specialist clubs or via an organisation such as ICCF.
