Tried three different applications, plus other browsers and Iphones, no joy. It may be on the brink of tipping into oblivion.
John can you help? I need to find what I posted in the thread:
Garry Kasparov vs Stuart C Conquest (1983) (Stuart won - good game, uncharacteristic tactical blunder by Kasparov.)
Sleepless quest No.623 is me looking for the Neil Dickinson position. (read on)
It would have been something like;
BCM March 1984. Kasparov gave a 10 board simul on BBC computers running an Acorn program.
A report by Stuart Conquest states that Neil Dickinson played a bad move and tendered his resignation
writing 1-0 on the scoresheet. Gary saw it was a simple blunder and wanted him to take back his move
and play another but he did not know how to make the computer do this.
(Gary possibly knew by then that the horrid display, white and purple pieces on yellow and green squares was
giving him and the players eye strain and headaches, one of the players, Susan Walker, fainted and was replaced.)
Gary went off looking for help, meanwhile someone pointed out to Neil that yes he was losing a
piece but there was a wee trick (which he and it appears Kasparov missed) and he could win it back.
Gary returns with Eric Schiller, Neil waves him away, plays on...Kasparov wins.
I may have asked on chessgames if anyone know of the game or position - has anyone replied.
Does anyone out there have a contact for for Neil Dickinson?
