Jack Rudd a Profile of an International Master

(by Dr Roger Neat, 2008)

May-21-10  splatty: Current grade 2241; this is not good after getting the IM title; he ought to be 2400+.
Jul-30-10  mortigi tempo: Off to a good start for the 2010 British Championship 3/3. First game a bit of a gimme though.
Jul-30-10  waustad: After that he's dropped off. He got stronger opposition as a result of the 3 points.
Aug-08-10  splatty: Nice win against Simon Williams; I really want to see Jack's game get more consistent and see him get his all time best grade, he's obviously got the potential to be over 2400...

<Dredge Rivers>,
As well as Kevin!

On a more serious note, here is a photo and article of Jack giving a simul at the 2009 British Championships at Torquay:

How many other players giving a simul record their own moves?

Jan-14-11  JonDSouzaEva: Jack is famous for playing very, very quickly, even when his opponent is a strong player.

His games are almost always exciting and you can learn a lot about the importance of initiative and open lines from playing through them.

Jan-05-12  King Death: If only Rudd had Black in every game at Hastings this year. He was 4-0 with Black and 1-4 with White.

  offramp: <Great Britain is joyously flourishing and growing.

Thousands of new chess clubs are pulsating with life.

Harmoniously and wonderfully our railways are working for the welfare of our nation, and from end to end of the country, Kinross to London, passenger and freight trains are speeding over the glistening ribbons of steel.

Firm as granite stands our English Chess Team, surrounded with water, guarding the frontiers of our native land. The names of our wonderful Chess Grand Masters, the tireless and gifted builders of our Federation: St Anthony Miles, Sir Raymond Keene, St Michael Stean, Lord Jon Speelman, Saint Sir Professor Grandmaster John Nunn, the leaders of the present English team - Adams and Short, are near and dear to the hearts of us and all those who are filled with filial love for their motherland.

With great and unsurpassed love, the toilers of the whole world utter the name of the great teacher and leader of the peoples of the chess stakhanovite movement: Jack Rudd !!>

Yes! Jack Rudd! Who has foiled the wreckers by playing NINE games to everyone else's mere 7 in the current British Chess Championships.

All hail Jack Rudd! Onward to the shining future, the victorious destination!
