|Sep-01-09|| ||HeadCrunch: That Blitz video on Youtube is hilarious!|
|Nov-23-09|| ||Ezzy: Mark Hebden has just come joint first with David Howell in the 2009 British rapidplay championships.|
|Jul-18-10|| ||Tabanus: Winner of the Svein Johannessen Memorial (Norway) 18-22 June 2010, ahead of GM Hammer:|
|Feb-15-12|| ||teddyo: Mark Hebden played top board for Leicestershire in a recent match against my county... our top board was ill and so our lowest rated substitute was drafted in. Needless to say the game was very one-sided and I don't think Mr. Hebden was very happy at having to dish out a free lesson.|
He also gave my scoresheet a bit of a frown - don't think he approved of my black opening... he was wrong ;)
|Feb-15-12|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday POTD!|
|Feb-15-12|| ||rapidcitychess: Happy birthday!|
|Feb-27-12|| ||Dionysius1: Hi teddyo. What was the logic of putting your lowest rated substitute on top board? What about moving everybody up one to fill the gap, or putting your strongest substitute on against Hebden?|
|Apr-09-12|| ||Tabanus: Congrats for winning the Dublin Easter International 5-9 April 2012!|
|Oct-29-12|| ||notyetagm: A nice win by Hebden from earlier this year.

|Aug-03-13|| ||offramp: A very unusual-looking character. A cross between Jackie Chan and Jackie Onassis.|
|Aug-09-13|| ||offramp: A book of his complete games would probably have about 50,000 pages.|
|Aug-09-13|| ||Nina Myers: Mon Dieu, at least, AT LEAST!|
|Jan-08-14|| ||offramp: A very good result at the latest Hastings.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||offramp: Strange news from the BBC.
|Jan-10-14|| ||RedShield: The Beeb is big on queer news.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||offramp: Hebden played many other games of chess as well. If all of them were recorded, I imagine the world itself wouldn't have enough room for the books that would be written.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||RedShield: He looks a bit Oriental, doesn't he? Gives another meaning to the expression <had a Chinese>.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||offramp: He looks like a cross between Jackie Chan and Jackie Onassis.|
|Sep-20-14|| ||offramp: He comments on his fine win Hebden vs H Tirard, 2009 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d45....|
|Oct-08-14|| ||waustad: There seem to be some games of his this tournament under the name Mark L. Hebdan.|
|Feb-15-15|| ||Nosnibor: Happy birthday Mark P.O.T.D.|
|Feb-15-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, GM Mark Hebden.|
|Feb-15-18|| ||GrahamClayton: Hebden must be one of the most active players in the UK - his name always seems to pop up at the many weekend tournaments/congresses that are held each year. At age 60, he doesn't seem to be slowing down!|
|Feb-15-18|| ||offramp: Oddly, his name was in the British newspapers this very morn:
The link's suffix says it all.
I made an estimate of how many games he had played here:
Mark Hebden (kibitz #41). It's about a dozen posts up.
However, using my own huge database, desribed in detail at
offramp chessforum (kibitz #769) and freely available to all, I can come up with a more accurate figure.
According to that database, up until December 31st 2016 Mark HEBDEN has played 295,471 games of competitive chess.
