  Retireborn: Does anybody have any info about this Anglo-Dutch match, especially where/what month it was played, etc? TIA Stephen
Mar-11-10  sneaky pete: <Retireborn> From the December 1977 issue of the British Chess Magazine:

"The annual Anglo-Dutch match at Elvetham Hall, Hartney Wintley, near Basingstoke (29-30 October) was drawn. A creditable result for England, lacking two GMs, against a full-strength Dutch team."

The two English absentees Keene and Stean were, I believe, at the time working with Kortchnoi in his last candidates match. Each team consisted of 8 men, one woman and a junior player. This board one game is from the first round, the second game was drawn.

  Retireborn: <sneaky pete>, once again many thanks for your help, which is much appreciated, and apologies for the delay in replying. Hartley Wintney is actually quite near where I live! You are correct about Keene and Stean, of course. Looking in my database I see there was an Anglo-German match played there in 1979 also.

  whiteshark: Tony didn't have the best of days, me thinks.

  Retireborn: <whiteshark> Tony generally lost with the Dragon against Timman, Karpov, and Spassky (not surprising), on the other hand he won some nice games with it including at least twice against Ljubojevic.

Jan-11-15  Ulhumbrus: 14 c3 disturbs the queen side pawns and invites the pawn counter-attack ...b5 and ...b4 although White has his bishop on d4 covering c3.
