   Jun-09-21 Hastings (1960/61) (replies)
roberts partner: <MissScarlett>How did L. W. Barden qualify to play in this event? Apart from Cafferty and Green, all the other eight players were invitees. That was normal at Hastings over many decades, just the one qualfying place for the winner of the Premier Reserves Major (later ...
   Jan-04-21 Leonard William Barden (replies)
roberts partner: The "former chess columnist" link seems to have been just a passing bug. Putting Barden in the FT's search index now brings up a selection of recent columns, as it should.
   Jun-05-20 Oliver Penrose (replies)
roberts partner: There wasn't any 'Cambridge Open 1952'. The game was played at Cambridge BUCA 1950.
   Jun-01-20 Anthony Henry Knight (replies)
roberts partner: That sounds a correct identification. My mental picture of AH Knight from those two Southsea tournaments is that he was a small, slight man with dark hair, polite and correct to his opponents, and a chain smoker. Britbase has an additional game from Southsea 1949 where ...
   May-02-20 Magnus Carlsen Invitational (2020) (replies)
roberts partner: <This event's been sucking up all the oxygen of publicity. Haven't seen a single mention yet of the <FIDE Online Nations Cup>
   Apr-17-20 Fischer vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
roberts partner: The black dressed player peering over the board behind Fischer is actually Julius Szabo of Romania. Take it from me, I played Julius Szabo at that Olympiad in Leipzig 1960.
   Mar-08-20 NN vs B Goulding Brown, 1912 (replies)
roberts partner: I am now reliably informed that the game ('A friendly game at Cambridge University CC won by B Goulding Brown') was first published on page 558 of the March 1912 Chess Amateur. I have seen a photocopy of the actual page. Therefore the game was played in 1912 at the latest, ...
   Mar-04-20 Otto Friedmann
roberts partner: That's Otto Friedman for sure at London 1946. I played him many times in blitz and in tournament games. Some reports misspelt his name. Tall, bald, with remnants of ginger hair and a deep booming voice. A bit pedantic but an intelligent and well educated man.
   Feb-27-20 Tolush vs J C Thompson, 1954
roberts partner: Thompson is the player's surname, not his first name as wrongly stated above by From Wiki: The term "Hippopotamus Defence" was also used by the English amateur J. C. Thompson to describe a system of his devising, where Black played c6, d6, e6, and f6; ...
   Oct-11-19 Eltaj Safarli
roberts partner: Looks like you mixed up two names. Carlsen drew today with Alexey Sarana. Safarli won today against Maxim Rodshtein.
