  perfidious: Believe it was, which marked the finest result of Flear's career.

Nunn wryly noted in 1994 that Flear had not equalled this performance, but that he had not got married again either!

  Dionysius1: Shame there's no write up of the tournament in the Tournament Index. Does any of the tournament writers fancy the challenge? There's a short write up by Roger Coathup here http://chesstales.blogspot.com/2007...
Aug-29-18  Sally Simpson: Hi Dionysius,

I agree because it is rather unique and rates with Pillsbury at Hastings (1895) and Kasparov at Game Collection: Banja Luka 1979

I'll add a piece of background on the page of an important (and romantic) game from this event.

Speelman vs Flear, 1986
