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.

  whiteshark: Tony didn't have the best of days, me thinks.
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.
