|Sep-11-05|| ||aragorn69: David Norwood's witty prose is back on the internet, with a few games from Ray Keene's "romantic" Staunton Memorial tournament: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/arts/mai...|
|Jun-18-06|| ||mack: There's a rumour on the English chess scene that David's planning a proper comeback any time soon.|
|Jun-18-06|| ||WMD: Talking of which, Big Ron Atkinson is back doing football commentary, on UKTV G2.|
|Jun-18-06|| ||mack: A long way away from Marcel Desailly in the BBC1 studio, it has to be said.|
|Jun-18-06|| ||WMD: Yes, I think UKTV are broadcasting from a warehouse in London.|
|Jun-18-06|| ||WMD: What is Ian Wright wearing?|
|Jun-18-06|| ||mack: 'Wrighty' should really go back to presenting dull gameshows, he's wasted on the BBC.|
|Jun-18-06|| ||WMD: Well, he helps make up the BBC quota of black faces.|
|Sep-25-06|| ||haggai: Hi,
I hope I'm not intruding. In 1993 David Norwood and Jane Seymore published an article where they'd shown a position where Deep Thought could have play and draw, but unbelievably took the rook and lost. I'm looking for that position and was wondering if anybody can send me by mail the position of the aforementioned game. Thanks!
|Sep-25-06|| ||mojo93033: <Haggai> You can find that position by clicking here: http://www.fortunecity.com/emachine... Scroll down to the bottom and it's in the left red box.|
|Sep-26-06|| ||haggai: Dear mojo93033, thank you very much!|

|Oct-24-08|| ||ruelas007: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_... Whoa 1 with a bunch of zeros no wonder he isnt a very active player.
Here's a photo of david in bonn 2008
|Oct-03-09|| ||WhiteRook48: one more draw and he'll have exactly the same amount of draws and losses|
|Oct-03-09|| ||Phony Benoni: For some reason, this game impress me: P Littlewood vs D Norwood, 1985|
|Oct-03-09|| ||whiteshark: <Player of the Day>|
|Aug-03-12|| ||Tal7777777: Hello Mr. Norwood! I am a fan of yours, and I have read two of your books. The titles of them are Chess Puzzles and Advanced chess.|
|Oct-03-12|| ||xenophon: Was he born in Farnworth near Bolton? If so he was a near neighbour of Nigel Short in Atherton.|
|Oct-03-12|| ||waustad: He didn't play any FIDE rated games between 2002 and 2011. Since then he's played 5 in the May listing and 9 in September listing for 2 consecutive years. I the Andorra Open is the 9 game tourney it seems.
|Oct-03-12|| ||waustad: It looks like he was on briefly years ago here as: NorwoodGM chessforum but like Alejandro Ramirez - littlepeasant chessforum he stopped being active quickly.|
|Oct-03-13|| ||offramp: < whiteshark: <Player of the Day>> That's right. It appears that GM Norwood is one of 4 chess players born on October 3rd. So every 4 years he is player of the day.|
|Oct-03-13|| ||Kikoman: <Player of the Day>
Happy 45th Birthday GM David Norwood! :D
|Oct-03-13|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday to the <POTD>: David Norwood.|
|Oct-03-13|| ||SamAtoms1980: I have his "Chess Puzzles" book. Whimsical, but a nice little trip for those who like to go off the beaten path.|
|Apr-13-14|| ||RedShield: <David Norwood, a World Chess Federation grandmaster (the highest ranking a player can obtain), was one of the recruits. “I was studying history at Oxford,” Mr. Norwood said. “Right out of the blue, I got contacted by Bankers Trust who said, ‘You would really make a good trader.’ I had no idea what trading was.”|
Mr. Norwood took the job and was soon put on a trading desk, but it was too sudden. “It was like being stuffed into a world-class chess match without knowing the moves,” Mr. Norwood said. He quit after only a few months.
Despite the setback, Mr. Norwood said the experience “kind of planted a seed in me.” After a year, he found a job at Duncan Lawrie, a British private bank, and began learning trading and investing. In 2008, at the age of 40, he retired a multimillionaire.>
