A category VIII round robin chess tournament was held in London, England from August 17th to the 28th, 1975. The field was composed of four grandmasters, Andras Adorjan, Jan Timman, Gyula Sax, and Gudmundur Sigurjonsson, invited to compete with the best and most promising IMs and FMs of Great Britain: Anthony Miles, John Nunn, Jeff Horner, Maxwell Fuller, Michael Basman, Craig Pritchett, and Simon Webb. Miles won the event scoring 3 points against four of the visiting grandmasters. The following year he would become a grandmaster himself, England's first ever.
