1962 Paul Keres Simul Tour

Post by John Saunders » Wed Apr 10, 2019 12:16 pm

I have collected together some games and information from a simul tour made by Paul Keres in November/December 1962...

http://www.saund.co.uk/britbase/pgn/196 ... iewer.html

There are 16 games and part-games in total, from the nine simuls given by Keres (seven in England, one in Ireland and one in Wales). It features a photo of Keres with some of the participants of the first simul in the series. Several familiar faces... one unfamiliar face is that of BC Gillman who was the subject of a forum enquiry some months ago.

not long after the Cuban missile crisis, but I'd imagine the tour was put together some months earlier.

Since publishing the article on BritBase, I've just come across a very long Kingpin article by Jimmy Adams which has further background information on Keres' simul tour.

Recognisably Brian Gillman, then one of the leading Middlesex juniors
