  GrahamClayton: Still one of the biggest upset wins in international tournament history.
Dec-01-19  spingo: Aside from Flear's result, which I believe coincided with his marriage, Plaskett's performance was considered unusual by the chess press. Thirteen games, +5 -8 and no draws. The kind of results people had 100 years earlier.
