|Sep-12-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Stephen Gordon|
GORDON, Stephen J.
|Aug-09-07|| ||Peligroso Patzer: Gordon had a nice win today in the British Championships on the Black side of a Najdorf Sicilian against pre-round tournament leader GM Jacob Aagaard to pull even with him for a share of first. They will likely be joined for a share of the lead by IM Stewart Haslinger, who seems headed for a draw against Kosten.|
|Aug-09-07|| ||GBKnight: In fact Kosten squeezed a win against Haslinger, so its Gordon and Aagaard leading going into the last round, although they have already played. A good chance for either of them to win it outright, but I expect to see some last round draws...|
|Aug-10-07|| ||Ezzy: I'm rooting for Gordon to win it. He lives only 10 miles from me. A lancashire lad (from Oldham).|
Haslinger is also a Lancashire lad (from Formby)
|Aug-10-07|| ||Peligroso Patzer: <GBKnight: In fact Kosten squeezed a win against Haslinger *** >|
Yes, my posting from yesterday proved once again the wisdom of Sam Goldwyn's admonition: "Be very careful when making predictions, especially about the future." Once Haslinger played 51. ... axb4 (allowing Kosten to reply 52. cxb4 obtaining connected passed pawns on the a- and b-files) White was winning. (I wonder if Haslinger could have held with 51. ... Kd6.)
|Aug-10-07|| ||GBKnight: Watching the final round live on the ECF website :
Gordon looks like he has a good chance to win this position against Kosten.
Aargaard looks to be winning now against Flear, so Gordon needs to win to share first place.
|Aug-10-07|| ||GBKnight: Aagaard won against Flear, but Stephen could not quite win after Kosten got tremendous counterplay and had to take a draw, but still a very creditable 2nd place with Rowson.|
|Jun-22-09|| ||myschkin: . . .
|Dec-10-10|| ||BobCrisp: Currently commentating on the <London Chess Classic>. He's now a GM.|
|Aug-03-12|| ||Cibator: Not the most informative biog on the site. Even Brian Eley (1972 champion) gets an inch more in his single line.|
|May-20-17|| ||Paint My Dragon: A rare outing for Stephen at the <Llucmajor Open> (Mallorca) this week, where his classy round 7 win against <Evgeny Romanov> was followed by a draw with <Imre Hera>. Keeps him in contention for the prizes going into tomorrow's final round. He was joined today on the top boards by girlfriend <Sophie Milliet>.|
It seems likely that the first 2 games given in his games collection belong to Stephen P Gordon, the chess book author.
