No caption but it may help explain why I always seem to be material down when I play him in my Sutton Coldfield simuls :roll:

Derek knew his addiction was out of control when he suddenly realised he hadn’t been to work for almost 2 weeks.

Derek prepared for the arrivals of GMs Svidler and Grischuk by attempting to garner so many pieces in reserve that no sacrifices against him could possibly succeed.

Derek's newly invented 128 piece a-side chess variant had been an unmitigated flop. Due to a complete lack entries he found himself drawn to play against a Sports Centre table in the inaugural national championship. Worse still, after 67 hours play in a complex battle, his mobile went off an he was instantly disqualified.

Derek was trying to reconstruct the position before the time scramble.

Derek's Bughouse team-mate was playing appallingly, but fortunately so was his opponent!
