Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-08-03  sleepkid: Fantastic game. Classic attacking, and some clever sacrifices. I believe Martyn is originally from England, where he was the U16 Champion in 1967 and U18 Champion in 1968.

For a while he was a professor at Florida State University, he later moved to Oregon to take a job with Intel (I think). His current USCF rating is 2452 which puts him in the top 100 of the U.S. though he's not active, so he's not actually listed.

Always a dangerous opponent, as Smyslov found out at Hastings in 1969.

Jun-08-03  morphynoman2: Martyn? You mean Martyn Corden?
Jun-08-03  sleepkid: Yes. Previously the website had several different listings for Martyn Corden (M Corden, MJ Corden, Martyn Corden, Martyn J. Corden, etc.) and now they've apparently been consolidated into one. I'm impressed with the constant attention given to improving the database here. Good job.
Apr-12-04  ToTheDeath: A nice attack, but after 13. ... Bxe1! 14. Qxg7 Bxf2+! 15. Nxf2 Rf8 White has compensation for the exchange but no win in sight.
