A player from Weymouth Chess club has had his second victory over a grand master this year.

Allan Pleasants' feat came at an event last week where grand master Raymond Keene was playing 19 simultaneous matches, including one against 13 year old Jack Brewer, who's also from Weymouth.

Competitors from across the county were at the event, which was part of the Mind Your Head Showcase.
