Coaching Sessions

I will be available for swindling coaching lessons Tues evening in the bar at The Plough. I feel that I am an expert following this effort in the U125 County Championships this week.

I wish you could coach my opponents to self destruct like Dave did!

I have the impression, swindling is a speciality of Littlethorpe (Mike Cowley is an expert). You should introduce a club cup for the best swindle of the season.

I reckon my draw with Steve Wylie in last years club championshiops would be a good candidate for such a cup. I was completely and utterley busted. I thought for 20 minutes and the best move I could think of was resigning! But I couldnt resign after thinking that long so I played the most complicated move I could find and somehow managed to claw a draw. I didnt deserve it though and I got my comeupance in the rapid play off!
