|Jul-18-05|| ||WMD: He certainly proved better at rearranging letters than Jim Plaskett.|
|Jul-18-05|| ||mack: I can see a games collection coming on here - chess players who have been on TV gameshows. Plaskett, Turner, Hartston, Dlugt, Thurlow, um... and all the rest of them.|

|Jul-18-09|| ||BoardLord: GM Turner became third in Arctic Chess Challenge 2008 and will participate in the 2009 edition in Tromsø, Norway as well. In connection with this I have written a profile of him that you can read at my blog Sjakkfantomet. It's in English.|
|Dec-11-10|| ||BobCrisp: <Postscript on the theme of overheard conversations|
At the recent, and last, <Lloyds Bank Masters>, I achieved my final IM norm and, having scored 2/4 against GM opposition, was well satisfied with my performance. The following conversation took place between GMs Mark Hebden and Patrick Wolff.
<Hebden>: "Who've you just played?"
<Wolff>: "Somebody called Turner."
<Hebden>: "Oh, you played Matthew...he doesn't know much theory but can be tricky in the middle game."
<Wolff>: "It's interesting you should say that."
<Wolff>: "His opening was CRAP!!"
At least I know where I stand in the grand order of things.>

|Dec-17-10|| ||BIDMONFA: Matthew Turner|
|May-26-14|| ||Octavia: Here is a bit from <bdlord> Matthew Turner (2517) is an English chess professional. He was born on the 12th of December 1975. He became a Grandmaster in 2002, and since the year 2000 he has been stable between 2480 and 2520 with a peak-elo of 2519. Since Turner got his Grandmaster-title he has had a rather low tournament activity where the league 4NCL is his main arena. He nowadays is more a teacher of chess and he works at the Millfield School in Somerset, England. Matthews chess classes include all levels of play, from beginners to experienced international players. To last year's (2008) Arctic Chess Challenge he brought with him his 21 years old student Peter S Poobalasingam (2224), and we remember that both of them did well - with Matthew at a strong 3rd place and Peter at an amazing 9th place - performing almost 200 points above his actual elo rating.|
In 2001 at Hastings he beat the young Levon Aronian who already was quite some player. But his sweetest chess memory is probably from the Four Nations Chess League in England where the board order of his team one season was 1. GM Turner 2. GM Morozevich 3. GM Short...
He was 1st= in the Ayr chess congress last week end.
