   Oct-11-19 Eltaj Safarli
 
roberts partner: Looks like you mixed up two names. Carlsen drew today with Alexey Sarana. Safarli won today against Maxim Rodshtein.

roberts partner: Remember Frank Kitto, "8-year sabbaticals", and Plymouth 1948.
 
   Aug-04-19 Henry Ernest Atkins (replies)
 
roberts partner: I saw Atkins in person in August 1954 when he visited the British Championship at Nottingham during the sixth round, played on the middle Saturday in the same hall as the famous Nottingham 1936 tournament. Atkins was accompanied by the BCF secretary Harold Meek and other ...
 
   Jun-27-19 Spassky vs J M Hodgson, 1979
 
roberts partner: Spassky was playing the cream of English juniors, who were at that time the best in the world and many of whom became GMs and IMs: https://nezhmet.wordpress.com/2007/... The top board was Nigel Short, and board 29 was future GM Stuart Conquest.
 
   Jun-05-19 Jacques Mieses (replies)
 
roberts partner: <No mention in the bio of serious accident Mieses suffered in 1937 when he lost a leg.> He may have had an accident, but he didn't lose a leg. I saw Mieses in 1945 when he played in a club match, and played him at Hastings 1948-49, so I am sure I would have noticed. ...

   May-28-19 Edgar George R Cordingley
 
roberts partner: That wasn't C H O'D Alexander, who had no Surrey connections, but L(aurie) Alexander, who played on a high board for the county but didn't compete in national tournaments. Horowitz's exclams are absurd for such trivial tactics. Cordingley lived near me, and in 1949 when I ...
 
   May-02-19 Paul Keres (replies)
 
roberts partner: The failed boat escape attempt wasn't quite like that: Keres’ attempts to flee to Sweden came at the last minute. He had agreed to wait with others for a boat to arrive at the coast near Haapsalu. The group of other people waiting for the day that never came included such ...

roberts partner: I hope I'm a bit better than that!
 
   Jul-07-18 Kurajica vs J T Farrand, 1973 (replies)
 
roberts partner: Kurajica v Farrand was from the Evening Standard Islington Open, which was a six-round weekend Swiss. The winner of the open qualified for a place in the ensuing Guardian Royal Exchange Masters, a 10-round all-play-all. To the annoyance of the organisers,sponsors and ...
