Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Phillips & Drew GLC Kings (1984)
During the 1980's the city of London experienced a chess renaissance that made it the premier chess capital of the West. The culmination of this activity was to host the first half of the Karpov - Kasparov World Championship Rematch (1986). The other events that helped London achieve this status included the USSR vs. Rest of the World (1984) match and a series of tournaments sponsored by the stock-broking firm Phillips & Drew (the others being Game Collection: London Phillips & Drew 1980 and Phillips & Drew Kings (1982)). This 1984 event was a fourteen player Category 14 tournament that was sponsored by both Phillips & Drew and the Greater London Council (GLC). It was also the first ever all GM tournament to be held in the United Kingdom. It ran from the 26th of April to the 11th of May and was held in the County Hall, London.

  zanzibar: Held in GLC County Hall, where GLC = Greater London Council.

Since the Council helped sponsor the event, along with brokerage Phillips & Drew, they desire their fair share of the event title.
