  Benzol: Michael John Haygarth
Born 11th October 1934 in Leeds
He was British champion in 1964 and also finished 1st= in 1959 and 1974 but lost the playoffs.
Aug-13-13  Cibator: Winner of the British Championship in 1964 - but so far, not one of his games from the event has been posted here! Extraordinary.

Jun-21-16  Cibator: According to this, Michael Haygarth died on 27 April 2016.
Jun-21-16  Cibator: Thanks for posting the game <Nosnibor>. As a matter of interest, where did you get it? I've only seen it myself once before, in a long-defunct UK publication that I no longer possess.
Jun-22-16  Nosnibor: <Cibator> The game was gleaned from the 1964 B.C.M.PAGE 286.Incidentally his win was by the huge margin of two points finishing on 9/11 with 4 others on 7/11 including former champion Golombek and 2.5 points ahead of Penrose the holder.

  offramp: There are Haygarths and there are Hogarths. There are no Hegarths or Highgarths, but there is a Hughgarth.

Hughgarth there! Friend or foe!

I have cut all these games out of the BCMs and I have sellotaped them together into a big ball and given them to Vasily Ivanchuk, and I've told him to give him to User: Plaskett who will annotate them and upload them.

Jul-28-17  Nosnibor: <offramp> You are simply amazing !
