 To start the new Chess season we will be holding a Lightning Tournament on Tuesday 28th August - further details to follow.

 In a Lightning Tournament a buzzer sounds every 10 seconds and, on the buzzer, the player due to move must make his/her move. The move must take place on the buzzer - not before or after. If you put your opponent in Check, you do not have to announce "check"; if the opponent is still in check after he/she has made their move you take the King to terminate the game.
