We are learning chess with Tony. Here are today's lessons: Don't move the a or h pawn on the first move. If you are in check you have to protect your king or move it. If your pawn is up move it and try to have the two rooks in the same rank or file. If you can, try to castle. Pawns can become a queen if they reach the other side of the board. Try not to move the same piece twice in a row. A good opening is moving the E pawn to E4.

Chess Tournament

Well done to our chess club members who participated in the Cavan Chess Club Junior Tournament last Saturday.

Tony wants all chess club members to bring a notebook with them from now on.
In the meantime, practice this -
