Re: World Senior Championships, Nov. 2017 Acqui Terme

I think the opponent was quite wrong in claiming the game, as it was completely obvious that Qa5 was the intended move in this well known opening variation. He should have adjusted the Queen to a5 and kept quiet and played on.

Re: British Championship, Cheltenham 1913

What happened to Harry Bogdanor ? He used to play on top board, I was on 2nd. in my first chess club in the 1940`s, Uxbridge Chess club. This is the first time I have seen anything about him since those far off days.
