Championnats Individuels ABC
On Sunday 02/04/2017 the first team of Gambit Bonnevoie clinched the title after beating Bieles in a dramatic encounter. It took us some 15 years and now the dream has come true: Gambit Bonnevoie are champions again!
2016/2017 has been a great season for Gambit Bonnevoie. Not only did our first team get the champion title, following a few exciting turnarounds, but also the third, fourth, fifth and sixth teams got promoted!
Along with the growth of our youth section, this is a confirmation of the good work delivered at all levels. Let’s continue with the same spirit.
Here is a picture of the champions dinner. More celebrations to come at the annual barbecue.
Thank you all for your contributing to this achievement!

On Saturday 10 October the GM Matej Šebenik delivered a well attended lecture on Picking the right move and decision making in complex positions. Our club intends to host additional training sessions with our GMs, which will be open to our fellow chess players from all clubs in Luxembourg.
The second round brought no fun to our first team, who suffered a painful setback against lower rated Differdange. A few missed opportunities and the willingness to push for a win until the very end backfired heavily. Surely the next match with leading Bieles is worth a season. Our players definitely need to refine their chess skills at the European Chess Club Cup in Skopje, FYROM, 17-25 October (http://www.europeanchessclubcup2015.com/), the Champions league of chess, with the only ambition to survive a deadly clash with giants.
The same was true for our second team: Nikos, Laszlo and Pit did a good job, all the others are sad that they couldn’t manage it in favour of BON II. We are not surprised to see that this season will be very hard for our 2nd team, but we continue in trying to do our best …
Good results for our three “lower” teams. Congratulations especially for the performance of some of our young players: Evangelos, Bob, Matthew and Stefan for BON III , thanks to the whole team of BON IV (with the youngsters Daphne and Aaditya), and finally Boris and in particular Georgia (Zeta) who not only spared us a Forfait but also won for BON V!
