Jun-28-14  Wyatt Gwyon: The link in the bio box is worth a read. Littlewood seems to have been a little...strange.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Most interesting--had no idea the family was so large, as the only siblings I had ever heard of were John and Norman.
Jun-28-14  Nosnibor: The first game listed in the database is a loss by John Littlewood,Norman`s brother.It was not until l963 that Norman first competed in the British Championship when making his debut. He finished second with 8/11 only half a point behind Penrose.Because of his attacking style of play at the time he was named "little Tal".
Jun-29-14  Nosnibor: The strange thing about the games collection of Norman`s is that the final game as well has the first game were both played by his elder brother John and should be transferred over to his db.

  perfidious: <Nosnibor> If you have not submitted correction slips for those games, I shall; just leave a response here either way.
Jun-29-14  Nosnibor: <perfidious> Thanks.Please feel free to submit a correction slip.Though I met Norman many years ago it is only John I have played when a draw was agreed in a won position for me.
