He has been connected with the School of Arts Club since 1863, where he has acquired all his knowledge of the game.
He carried off the third prize in the tournament held there in 1863, and the second prize in 1864 ; in 1868 he again carried off third prize ; in the match between the School of Arts and Darlinghurst Clubs in 1868 he was top scorer, having out of nine games, won eight and drawn one ; in the Darlinghurst tournament of 1868, he carried off the second prize.
His style of play is slow, cautious, and profound.
From want of practice, however, he is liable to make miscalculations, and occasionally, even in his most carefully played games, is guilty of oversights.>

|Sep-08-15|| ||optimal play: <The boss dog of the inquisition, Royal Commissioner into Trade Unions Dyson Heydon, is not the first in his family to have a crack at the union movement. Nor is he the first to perform the role of inquisitor in a Royal Commission. Far from it, for it appears that certain members of the Heydon clan have never been at all keen on the defenders of the rights of the working class.|
You see, about 100 years before retired Justice Heydon became Commissioner Heydon, his ancestor Justice Charles Gilbert Heydon – was bashing the lefty lads around the head in his role as President of the Industrial Arbitration Court of NSW from 1905-1918.>
<Labor fails to oust Dyson Heydon through Senate>
<The motion said Mr Heydon's acceptance of an invitation to speak at a Liberal Party fundraiser meant he "has failed to uphold the standards of impartiality expected of a holder of the office of royal commissioner".>
