The Danny King Slightly Late Christmas Cracker

Yes, once again Hammer productions bring you the best of chess.

All round top guy, ace chess commentator and most importantly a Hammer, GM Daniel King, welcomes in the New Year on 3rd January with a chess talk at the Anvil aka the Mindsports Centre.

Those of you who have experienced a D.King lecture know it is a very different beast.

Danny’s lecture on stalemate themes had the audience captivated

His previous talks at Hammer have concentrated on the themes of stalemate and the King’s Gambit. He makes you think about chess in a very different way and is always ready for a good Q & A at the end.

So, Hammers – come on down at 7pm and get your health kick January, at least chess-wise, off to a flying start.

See you there!

And in other news…

The London League have postponed all January fixtures (to June) due to uncertainty around the pandemic. Middlesex, Thames Valley and Central London League matches are currently still going ahead. See our calendar for the latest league schedule.

Robin is generously offering festive chess coaching to club members…

Dear Hammers – as I am currently in isolation with COVID I have a bit of spare time on my hands and thought I would put it to good use. I would like to offer some chess coaching to newer/lower graded adult players (approx. U1600) to take place between now and the New Year. If you’re interested in getting some personalised analysis of your games or have particular chess questions you would like some help with then please email me on – I’m envisaging most of this being 1-2-1 via zoom but if anyone is open to a group session that can be arranged too. All I ask in return is a gift donation to Crisis at Christmas, a charity which offers support to those experiencing homelessness at Christmas.
