  Benzol: James Christopher Howell
Born 17th May 1967 in Brent
Awarded the IM title in 1985.
Mar-20-05  who: In his book "Essential Chess Endings" problem #10 he gives the position White: Kg8, Ra6, Pg7
Black: Ke7, Rg2
White played 1.Rh6 Rg1 and he faults this. In fact this leads to a very elegant promotion of the pawn. 1.Rh6 Rg1 2.Kh8 Kf7 3.Rh7 and white will queen next move with a double check and win the rook. Does anyone know where I could find his email to let him know?
Mar-20-05  pyryk: I have no idea about Howell's email, but I bet that the people @ Batsford could redirect any comments about the book to Howell.
May-26-06  stanleys: Little correction:this man a grandmaster.He played very well in some soviet tournaments in 1988-90
