Apr-24-04  weary willy: just beware that several of these games are actually by Paul's father John E Littlewood - and vice versa in John's list
Apr-24-04  ArchBishop: There was a great mathematician by the name of John E. Littlewood (Hardy littlewood). Not this guys dad.
Jul-05-04  weary willy: I believe John E Littlewood was a languages teacher at a secondary school - certainly he is not the mathematician

  ray keene: there are three strong littlewoods all british internationals john littlewood
norman littlewood deceased johns brother
paul littlewood johns son

of the three altho all came slose to winning the british championship only paul actually achieved the feat.

i wd like to recommend the game norman littlewood v lengyel hastings 1962 63 i believe was the date maybe 1964 as a wonderful attacking game. also it may be in the database norman littlewood v haygarth brit ch whitby 1964 where norman cd have won easily and won the british championship but lost by insane blunders instead.

Aug-23-05  jamesmaskell: Theres a Skegness in Scotland as well as England? Didnt know that!

  GrahamClayton: Has anyone read his book "Chess Tactics"? It looks well thought out, with explanations, examples and then quizzes.

  PeterGrant: John Littlewood (not the mathematician) was actually Paul's brother.

  PeterGrant: Correct my post, Norman Littlewood was John's brother not Paul.
