May-06-05  aw1988: Lol. First Stuart Conquest and now this.
Mar-26-06  NorthernExposure: Why is this funny?
Mar-26-06  GBKnight: Not sure either.
What country does Stuart play for. I remember him as a strong player in London around 25 years ago, assuming its the same player.
Mar-28-06  NorthernExposure: Stuart was a member of a Trotskyist political group as I recall. The story goes that he joined the Territorial Army reserve for some reason and then went AWOL and wound up hiding from the Military Police in Papua New Guinea. I think he has resurfaced in the UK now. For what must be a fairly recent picture go here:
Jan-10-12  wordfunph: <NorthernExposure> good input, thanks!
Jan-10-12  Whitehat1963: Stuart's record isn't too fancy.
Sep-20-16  asianwarrior: I hope somebody can give copies of games where he finished with medals on 2 olympiads.
