Re: PLAYING CONDITIONS - NOT THE WORSE? SURELY?

The Hastings Chess Congress around 1993 comes to mind, when we were playing on the Hastings Pier with a gale force wind for company, and waves smashing into the pier. Sea sickness tablets were essential. The entire Congress could have been lost at sea.

Re: Out of print books that shouldn't be...

A book called "The Soviet Chess Conveyor" by Mikhail Shereshevsky, published in Sofia, Bulgaria, 1994 (english language). Chess book reviewers seem to have overlooked this outstanding book.
Very hard to find a second-hand copy. Shereshevsky is a very talented writer.

Re: Husband and wife simultaneous national champions

Royal Air Force Squadron Leader David Pritchard was posted to Singapore after the Second World War, accompanied by his wife Elaine. I believe that they were the joint husband and wife simultaneous champions of Singapore, for at least 1 year.
