|Feb-05-10|| ||Retireborn: Does anybody have any info about this Anglo-Dutch match, especially where/what month it was played, etc? TIA Stephen|
|Mar-11-10|| ||sneaky pete: <Retireborn> From the December 1977 issue of the British Chess Magazine:|
"The annual Anglo-Dutch match at Elvetham Hall, Hartney Wintley, near Basingstoke (29-30 October) was drawn. A creditable result for England, lacking two GMs, against a full-strength Dutch team."
The two English absentees Keene and Stean were, I believe, at the time working with Kortchnoi in his last candidates match. Each team consisted of 8 men, one woman and a junior player. This board one game is from the first round, the second game was drawn.
|Mar-26-10|| ||Retireborn: <sneaky pete>, once again many thanks for your help, which is much appreciated, and apologies for the delay in replying. Hartley Wintney is actually quite near where I live! You are correct about Keene and Stean, of course. Looking in my database I see there was an Anglo-German match played there in 1979 also.|

|Mar-26-10|| ||Retireborn: <whiteshark> Tony generally lost with the Dragon against Timman, Karpov, and Spassky (not surprising), on the other hand he won some nice games with it including at least twice against Ljubojevic.|
