All games are complete in both sections and the winners remain the same. Congratulations to our former junior player who now clearly stands with the best players in the club, James Watson. Congratulations also to Michael Tausz who was the top contender of the B grade and stayed there with his win.
29-10-15 Arthur Koelle - In for the long haul!
Here is a link to a very interesting game played by Arthur Koelle in the final round of the German Landesliga. The game went for 6hrs 55 mins and Arthurs win gave his team the premiership in the division. The win came just before the sudden death at 7 hours. There were errors on both sides but it was played under great tension. It was the last game of the final round with the outcome to determine the team winner for the year in that division.
