  wordfunph: on Walter Gledhill..

<The immediate cause of death was heart failure.

Mr. Gledhill was born in Leeds and was an ardent chess enthusiast from his early days.

He was essentially an attacking player, ever on the alert for opportunities of offensive, never content to adopt passive tactics. Victory never elated, nor defeat depressed him.>

rest in peace master Gledhill..
