Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Phillips & Drew GLC Kings (1984)

During the 1980's the city of London experienced a chess renaissance that made it the premier chess capital of the West. The culmination of this activity was to host the first half of the Kasparov - Karpov World Championship Rematch (1986). The other events that helped London achieve this status included the USSR vs. Rest of the World (1984) match and a series of tournaments sponsored by the stock-broking firm Phillips & Drew (the others being Phillips & Drew Kings (1980) and Phillips & Drew Kings (1982)). This 1984 event was a fourteen player Category 14 tournament that was sponsored by both Phillips & Drew and the Greater London Council (GLC). It was also the first ever all GM tournament to be held in the United Kingdom. It ran from the 26th of April to the 11th of May and was held in the County Hall, London.

  wordfunph: 12 scoresheets of Tony Miles from the 1984 Philips & Drew closed tournament in London, sold for EUR 93.17

http://www.gmsquare.com/cgi-bin/auc...

Apr-14-14  zanzibar: Held in GLC County Hall, where GLC = Greater London Council.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greate...

Since the Council helped sponsor the event, along with brokerage Phillips & Drew, they desire their fair share of the event title.

Apr-14-14  zanzibar: And it might be mentioned that Polugaevsky vs Torre won the Brilliancy Prize for the tournament.

I couldn't find mention of this in the ~7 pages of kibitzing, but it be there.

Oct-29-16  allan.dinglasan: The only defeat of Karpov was dealth by our very own Eugene Torre.

  keypusher: Great result for Murray Chandler and the place where Korchnoi and Karpov played each other in a tournament for the first time since Korchnoi's defection.
