Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-13-14  jerseybob: Penrose, seemingly bored by all the good ways of handling this opening, tries a bad one. The way-too-subtle 10.Qc1 and 11.Rd1 only drives the black queen to a better square, e8, from where it soon rules the roost(15..Be6!). Black, making natural moves, gets a clear edge, and though white's 22.b5? hastens the end, it's hard to see what he can do in the long run. This is the only victory listed in this database for Haygarth over Penrose, but there has to be at least one more, the game he won in the 1964 Chp. I believe it's in BCM and I'll try to dig it out.
Jan-15-14  jerseybob: I checked the BCM '64 Annual and amazingly Haygarth won the '64 title without playing Penrose. So another hallucation(in a long line of them) on my part.

  Nosnibor: <jerseybob> Check it again !You are not hallucinating. Haygarth played Penrose in the last round and drew with the black pieces in 30 moves of a Queens Indian.
Jan-16-14  jerseybob: Nosnibor: By God, you're right. And I now realize that "other game" I thought I remembered was this one. Thanks for setting me straight.
