|Jan-03-05|| ||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|
|May-17-08|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday GM Howell!|
