Re: The Match of the Century USSR vs. World : 50th Anniversary Edition

I feel I should point out that Larsen won his match against the combined talents of Spassky and Stein 2.5-1.5

He recovered amazingly well from the 1 b3 miniature.

I think he would be pleased that this book has been published.

Re: Future of EPSCA Schools Competition

So who has obtained the rights to run the 2021 EPSCA events? Forgive me if this is obvious and I have missed it.

Re: 2021 South of England Junior Congress postponed.

Hopefully, we will be able to hold the Congress later in the year if things become safer and I can find a gap in the calendar. Yateley Manor has indicated that they would be happy with this. Then back to normal, last weekend of January in 2022.

Mutually agreed.

Basic common sense.

2021 South of England Junior Congress postponed.

With regret, I announce the postponement of next year’s congress. If it is possible to reschedule, we will. We may have to wait until 2022.

I’m sorry about this.

Re: 19th Century Oil Portrait of World Chess Champion Howard Staunton

I can scarcely make out any difference between the two portraits, but if pushed , I would say that Ray Keene’s picture depicts Staunton shortly after being mated by the bishop and knight, rather than mating.
