  GrahamClayton: Position after 45....Ra5:

Penrose immediately captured the d-pawn with 46. Rd6, expecting 46...fe3, but Ulvestad's 46...Re5 pins the bishop and protects the knight, with a winning position.

Penrose then collapsed onto the floor, and stayed there till he had recovered.

I understand that he had to withdraw from the team and the event following this episode.

Penrose competed in the 1974 Nice Olympiad, and then competed in OTB events for a few more years before concentrating on correspondence chess from the late 1970's onwards.

  FSR: Raymond Keene: <Having finished my game, I was observing Penrose's efforts against the Andorran top board. He was a master strength player called Ulvestad, not a native Andorran but a Swedish/American import, far superior in strength to his native born team mates. Nevertheless, Penrose seemed to have everything under control, when he rose from the board, while Ulvestad was contemplating his next move, and whispered to me: "I have just blundered and I am going to lose."

I took a look; unfortunately he was right. I turned round, just in time to see Penrose collapse onto the ground. Physically he was small and light in stature, so I literally picked him up and planted him bolt upright in a handily adjacent empty chair. This seemed to me to be the sensible thing to do, but to my intense horror, his face started to turn green and then black. Switching from suspect Spanish to German, where I was on safer ground, I called out: "Gibt es einen Arzt im Hause?"

Fortunately my summons was answered, and a steward, evidently adept at first aid, leapt across the barrier separating players from the public, and said: "What you are doing is killing him!" Together we replaced Penrose on the ground, horizontally, and to my great relief, normal colour began to return to his face. Apparently, placing him bolt upright had drained the blood from his head and would have been imminently fatal. He was probably within minutes of death at worst, or permanent brain damage, at best. The lesson I gained from my experiences was to learn how to call for a doctor in many different languages, rather than attempting to save any further unfortunates who collapsed in my presence.>
