|Jan-19-06|| ||DeepBlade: Quote from this guy
"Hallo aan al diegenen die schaakles van mij kregen. Wat kan ik zeggen... Sorry?" - grootmeester Mark Hebden
Its dutch, translated it says
''Hi to those who got chess lessons from me. What can I say... sorry?''
|Jan-19-06|| ||MoonlitKnight: Mark is a very likeable character. He's always smiling and laughing and has a good sense of humour. He also likes to drink and gamble.|
|Feb-15-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Mark Hebden|
|Aug-17-06|| ||WTHarvey: Here are some crucial positions from Mark's games: http://www.wtharvey.com/hebd.html|
|Nov-13-06|| ||sitzkrieg: I found the following part of a game of Hebden on the internet, its not in any database as far as i can see. It was played in Hoogeveen 2003. Hebden is defeated by a much weaker player (who had prepared with fritz)with a nice combination, according to
the motif is know with reversed colours from the french opening.
Hebden-van der Oudewetering
1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 e6 5.b3 Bb4+ 6.Bd2 Bd6 7.Bd3 Nbd7 8.0-0 0-0 9.Nc3 e5 10.cxd5 cxd5 11.Nb5 Bb8 12.dxe5 Nxe5 13.Bc3 Nxf3+ 14.Qxf3 Bg4 15.Bxf6 Qd7 16.Bf5 Bxf5 and 0-1 after some more moves.
|Feb-27-07|| ||PieceArtist: Any comments on the Short Hebden Game 2006 European Bumfluff Championships Liverpool? Hebden resigned after Lord Nigel commented on his last move as being "Utter SHYTE!"|
|Aug-09-07|| ||GBKnight: Mark Hebden, the 'Jimmy White' of British chess, (having played for the British Championship so many times and come close but never actually winning it), is in with a good chance going into the last round this year :
|Dec-22-07|| ||waddayaplay: <Jun-09-04 Muncher: He doesn't make that much money in fact I saw him busking last weekend on the London underground. Most English chess players do this to supplement their income.>
This must be a joke, I presume...|
|Feb-15-09|| ||MaxxLange: Maybe he means "hustle at speed chess" by "busking"? Or maybe Hebden plays a mean Neil Young cover, who knows?|
|Feb-15-09|| ||fm avari viraf: Mark & I played many years together the Challengers, Weekends & the International Blitz Chess Tournaments at Hastings, England. Once, I lost a crucial game to him in the Blitz Chess Tournament but manage to win a Prize. Many years,I participated in the Blitz Chess Tournaments & kept on winning Prizes! I think, Mark has lost the motivation to scale higher in the firmament of Chess & that is why he keeps losing to weaker players.|
|Feb-15-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Mark your place, Mark! :D|
|Jul-28-09|| ||champsylove: I think it is the same Hebden that got smashed by Kingcrusher on youtube in a 1 minute blitz.
|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!|
