The team is called The InChessables, and is captained by my friend Chris Rebbeck (another Chessable user) and has among the …... click here to read more.

Greeny50000 is booked-to-the-teeth. He’s even got the badge for it. And Greeny’s also got the Like a Bolt! badge for being fast – which is just as well considering how quickly he’s improving.
