|Jul-27-08|| ||seagull1756: Alan Phillips, Joint British Champion 1954-5, published his book called 'The chess teacher' in 1978 - this little self-tutor is one of the best I've ever come across...|
|Jun-27-09|| ||ray keene: alan passed away last week on june 24- a sad loss to british chess-his best game still needs to go up here -a win v golombek with a fantastic rook sacrifice from the 1961 british championship-well worth adding if someone has it in the right format!|
|Feb-28-12|| ||wordfunph: <Former British Champion Alan Phillips once told Richard Furness that at one event he noticed two young players diligently continuing a game with only a King each. He advised them the game was a draw. "Go away. Leave us to play our game in peace." was the indignant reply of one player. The next day, he inquired as to the result, "Oh, I lost as usual." said the player sadly.>|
rest in peace master Phillips..
