|Jul-18-05|| ||mack: I can see a games collection coming on here - chess players who have been on TV gameshows. Plaskett, Turner, Hartston, Dlugt, Thurlow, um... and all the rest of them.|

|Jul-18-09|| ||BoardLord: GM Turner became third in Arctic Chess Challenge 2008 and will participate in the 2009 edition in Tromsų, Norway as well. In connection with this I have written a profile of him that you can read at my blog Sjakkfantomet. It's in English.|
|Dec-11-10|| ||BobCrisp: <Postscript on the theme of overheard conversations|
At the recent, and last, <Lloyds Bank Masters>, I achieved my final IM norm and, having scored 2/4 against GM opposition, was well satisfied with my performance. The following conversation took place between GMs Mark Hebden and Patrick Wolff.
<Hebden>: "Who've you just played?"
<Wolff>: "Somebody called Turner."
<Hebden>: "Oh, you played Matthew...he doesn't know much theory but can be tricky in the middle game."
<Wolff>: "It's interesting you should say that."
<Wolff>: "His opening was CRAP!!"
At least I know where I stand in the grand order of things.>
(November 1994, <CHESS> magazine)
