A bunch of folk have quit the ECF board - and you can read about it on the atticus forum if you so choose.
I've no idea about the ins and outs nor do I have a clue what it means for chess as a whole but I do know this...
When I started playing club chess in the 80s England were one of the world's leading chess nations. We got three consecutive silver medals at the chess olympiad and at one time had two of the top five rated players.
Now English chess is rubbish. I'm not sure the decline is entirely related to me taking up the game. Perhaps it's got something to do with the people who've been running things.
So what's going on at the ECF?
Thanks to Angus for the tip-off.
