Nosnibor: <Petrosianic> Thanks for your comments but Keres won the right to play whereas Geller obtained his place by concession. The playoff decided this because Geller had the better SB score in the original event.
Nosnibor: It should go on record that in 1967 he won the British U21 Championship and also shared the Northern Open Junior title the year before. After 1968 he appeared only to play local club and county chess.
Nosnibor: <Sally Simpson> The diagram you have shown is not the correct one. The position you have shown is an easy win for Black. The three black pawns on the Kings side should all be Bishops on black squares ! Its not April fools day yet !
Nosnibor: In the introduction it states that De Vere lost a match to Zukertort in 1874 and two games are given both being wins by the latter. This was not a match but an Handicap tournament and De Vere lost by 2-1. The game not in the db was a brilliant win by De Vere.
