Yes, David, I was grateful they had 64 squares...

I didn't like that song much when ABBA did it, never mind Rylan.

Re: Kasparov Simul New York London - Photo

Stewart - thank you so much for those memories. I am friends with Sophia on Facebook and also remember Jamie. You must have worked with her a lot over the years, she was at Lloyds Bank Masters every time I think. I can remember asking her (and you) for tickets to the last night party. Gary said Lond...

I recall the brilliant ARC tournaments were held at Westergate, as was the World Girls Under 16 in 1981, won by a 12 year old Zsuzsa Polgar (who wanted to...

Kasparov Simul New York London - Photo

Gary Lane (pictured here partly obscured on the right) sent me this picture of the Kasparov Simul - this was taken in Limehouse Studios. I can see Neil Carr and Pete Wells, Eric Schiller too - any other ideas anyone?

They were all discussing the games via video link.
