Re: Bob Wade

Another RGW Middlesex question, which concerns the final of the 1979-80 BCF Counties Championship at Aston University, on 5 July 1980. All sources give the result as a victory by 11½–8½ to Middlesex under David Foley-Comer's legendary captaincy. No problem there. However, Bob played John Littlew...

Re: Bob Wade

I totally agree with RDC as I recall that as a Junior I was advised to reach a winning position and let the adjudicators win it on my behalf. I was advised it was worth saccing time on the clock and not to play further moves. This is terrible advice for young players. I am appalled that adjudicatio...

Re: Technical chess questions

Peter Roberson is a strong young player. I never understand, though, why people think that randomly throwing pieces at a king with his Nike's on is at all likely to work. Stop the bu'r first! Thoughts: a) 7. Qf7+ seems pointless, just unclogging Black's development, was 7. Qe2 better? b) I guess 6. ...

Could you quote the relevant paragraph to me, and provide bibliographic details (ISBN, that sort of stuff) Roger, Thank you for faxing this stuff to me! P.

John - Thank you for this! I take it, then, that you don't have the 1961-62 YB, then?

Re: Technical chess questions

Maybe if it was narrowed from 46 to 15 it could be a sub-line chapter in a book. Doubt it, Ben, who would want to play a line that has been comprehensively holed below the water line? All people will be interested in is the torpedo... I worry that this is going to be only the first of many marginal...

Re: What did Martin Regan Do?????????????

Martin,

Thanks for this. It makes everything much, much clearer. In fact I think we have finally got to the bottom of things. One thing - what was it that GW fell out with Claire about?

Hope to see you properly in charge sometime. Hope I'm not hoping for too much.

Best Regards,
Paul McKeown.

Re: Bob Wade

The reference is on page 114 and Barden describes what could be regarded as interference with the game in progress. To paraphrase, the top board Yanofsky noticed that the Oxford player's hand was hovering over a piece which it would be a serious error to move. Barden as match captain therefore anno...

Ben - I get your point. I found it difficult to comprehend what Bradford and Bingley was on about myself, too, and what I did understand, I struggled to swallow.
