Jan Sendall and Paul Clark Memorial Rapidplay

Colin Denham of Haverfordwest Chess Club writes:

"I would like advise everyone about a Memorial Handicap Rapidplay Tournament that I am arranging for Sunday 12th May please.

The link to the entry form: Jan Sendall & Paul Clark Memorial Rapidplay Tournament already appears on the Dyfed Chess Association site.

I would also like to post the following words regarding the recent death of Paul Clark please:

It is with deep regret that I have to inform everyone that Haverfordwest Chess Club has lost another competent player this season - Paul Clark, who passed away on the 11th April 2013 at the age of 62.

Paul was a very keen and inventive player and was arch rival to the late Jan Sendall (who was tragically killed in a car crash on the 10th December 2012) - like Jan, Paul had a cunning ability to manufacture checkmates from almost drawn positions.

I had several tough battles with Paul over the board and will miss being able to play any more challenging games with him.

Hopefully, they can now both continue their battles in the heavens above..."
