The match with QUB was drawn. It took place at the impressive Queen`s University venue. 

With such a good Chess venue and the possibility of funding, it looks like Queen`s Chess Club have a potentially very promising future.

Here is a short video taken at the venue just before the games started, did not get much video footage as my game was the last to finish.

Rookie`s Report on the match is below.
1.Callum Ormerod 0-1 Ray Devenney
2. Ian Woodfield 0.5-0.5 Sam Flanagan
3. Samuel Ngieng 0.5-0.5 David Ruben
4.Milad Fozooni 1-0 John McKenna
5. Bernard Mc Caughey 0.5-0.5 Bemard Jaffa
Total 2.5-2.5. + Bonus: 3.5-3.5.

What names to conjure with - how to make puns with those names? 

I had to " burn hard" the midnight oil to think of one for the draw between the 2 Bernard's!

In this "column", Calum's defeat against unbeaten Ray could not be omitted, however " callous" that might be! 

As for Fozooni's victory over previously unbeaten John, "fools only" rush in where angels fear to tread! 

As I said to the judge, "yes, mi lud", the puns are that bad! 

The chances of a positive result on Board 3 rather than a draw were " ngoing, ngoing, Ngieng "! 

Before the match, I wondered if QUB 1 " would field" Woodfield but they did and his draw with Sam tied the match.

Names in the Bible are very interesting, they all signify something, like NABAL for instance.

1 Samuel 25:25 Let not my lord, I pray thee, regard this man of Belial, even Nabal: for as his name is, so is he; Nabal is his name, and folly is with him: but I thine handmaid saw not the young men of my lord, whom thou didst send.
