Experience v Enthusiasm

Here is another game that was played during the ANU Chess Club's Winter Rapid. It was a match up between the experienced tournament player Ian Rout, and the enthusiastic (and improving) junior player Allen Setiabudi. In this case it was experience that won out, with Ian playing a nice combination that is often seen in books on chess tactics, but not often seen at the board.

Gotta get a few wins against the juniors. Soon enough they turn the tables...

Certainly not at the ANU Chess Club. Bucking the trend that may be seen elsewhere, most of our events have over 50% of the players aged between 20 and 50, with the over 50's and the under 18's contributing about 20% each.

...with the remaining amount (up to 10%) being comprised of a mixture of aliens, gremlins and frogs.
