Chateau Segrave Chess Challenge
Tonight we had the first of I'm sure many Chess challenges.
Derrick Atkins gave me a Bahamina ass kicking. All I can say is that it has been a very long time since I played. Thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it. In good old sprinter mode he trash talked whilst I called myself the 'Silent Assasin'.
And then the Grand Master (Loren) stepped into the hot seat. Poor Derrick!! lol
Lets just say Derrik got his second lesson of the day from the coach. He learnt about 'Castling' albeit part way through the game. lol
The body languge said it all. Derrick lent forward poised for attach. Whilst Loren sat back calm planing a not so painful onslaught. Did Derrick think he was really going to win? The sad this is he really thinks/thought he was going to win.
Sitting and watching the game you could see that Loren was a good 3 moves ahead in thought than Derrick.
Now I always thought the sprinter boys spent every waking moment when not practing or competing playing Xbox and chasing women. Derrick dispelled that myth this evening by putting up a pretty good fight. Im sure he will be back for another thrashing. lol
Derrick 1 - Joice 0
Loren 1 - Derrick 0
