Students vs Staff Chess Match

UCC Chess’ first big event of the year takes place this Thursday, 29 September outside the library. It will be an exciting students vs staff blitz match!

This is great chance to get back at a lecturer if they’ve ever set a horrendous paper for you! It’s also a great chance to get some experience in a friendly environment. The match will go from approximately 1.15-2.45 p.m. and the format will be 5 rounds with a time control of minutes plus a 5 second increment per move for each side. The staff team is made up of Pat Twomey, Paddy McCarthy, David O’Kelly and Dennis O’Connell.

If there are any students who would like to sign up  (or even anymore staff!), send an email to The Facebook event for it is found here:

See you there!
