My win made the top 10 of biggest shocks in the world this year on a certain website but of course not all games are submitted to that website. (Edit, I sh...

Re: Fred Coombes

Re: Biggest shock in England this year?

Hi Lee Congrats on your "upset" win - a great example of how to play against the IQP. I was just curious why you yourself withdrew from the event after Round 5: http://www.classic.livechess.co.uk/2014/fideop/SMWSite/players/p198.html Please excuse the potential impoliteness of the enquiry if you ha...

Re: Biggest shock in England this year?

Statistically, one shock does not mean anything. How many other shocks have you had? Just for Francis thought I would enter Hampstead u2200 this week and show him some more shocks ;) [Event "Hampstead Brambles u2200"] [Site "Heathside School"] [Date "16/12/14"] [Round "2 W"] [White "Lee Bullock (15...

Lee had a shocking start to his chess career - http://www.ecforum.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4414&p=91765&hilit=massively#p91765 And, I suspect he will deliver a few more if he continues to play games at a rate of ...

Re: Biggest shock in England this year?

Should of added yeah the ecf Grades were 201 v 130. Also he is a Candidate Master which I think means he was once a top player. Think his highest fide was well over 2200. Shame he withdrew because of this. Almost feels he was so embarrassed he had to leave the event. My reward though for this win wa...
