Nov-28-07  jenspetersson: Corden played a B02-game against Williams in Cambridge in 1970 which is mentioned in ECO but I can't find it anywhere. Anybody out there with a SuperMegaDatabase and too little else to do in your lives?!
Jan-06-12  acmilan03c1: Corden Martyn John.
Jun-14-15  zanzibar: Perhaps this guy?

Jun-14-15  zanzibar:

If I were a betting man, I'd bet yes.

Mar-05-17  Otinokyad: I believe that the game you seek can be found here:
Mar-05-17  Chizoad: I met Martyn Corden when he was at Florida State University. I was a freshman at FSU playing in the Tallahassee Open in the unrated (U1400) section (my first tournament ever), and he was in the open section. There were several strong players in Tallahassee at that time, though I believe Corden was the highest rated. Corden worked at FSU's high-speed computing group.
