During the final weekend of the season, the 4NCL was able to transmit selected games live over the internet. We are very grateful to Dave Clayton for making this transmission happen. Just before the start of the round 10 match between Betsson.com and North West Eagles, Dave took some photos. As well as the players, you can also see the sensory chess boards that are used to automatically track the moves. The extra queens you can see beside some of the boards are in case of pawn promotions.
