Good luck to the Glasgow Montrose players battling in the Scottish Chess Championship between Saturday 5th and Sunday 13th.  Chris Perkin is playing in the International Open and Norman Lynsey is in the Seniors.  Chris experienced fifteen minutes of fame yesterday afternoon when he rose to board 14 (one of the internet connected boards) and had his game broadcast live to millions of viewers (potentially…).  In retrospect, he probably wishes he hadn’t! Live games can be found here.
