|Jan-11-06|| ||Benzol: I've already posted the following game in the Kibitzers Cafe but as with most postings there it quickly fell into the background so I'm reposting it here and hope someone can answer the question at the end.|

[Black "Raicevic, Vladimir"]

The game had to be broken-off at this stage and was left for adjudication.
My question is does anyone know what the final result of this game was?
White looks to be better but he has three pieces that can be captured so it's a difficult position to assess.
Thanks in advance.
|Jan-11-06|| ||hitman84: <Benzol>i think black is slightly better coz of the double B's here Bd6 is forced after which white has the only reasonable continuation with Qd4 Qc4 Rb7+ Ke6 Qc4 Bc4 ,i guess its a matter of some moves before whites isolated pawns fall after which the black's B's are goin to be menacing!|
|Jan-11-06|| ||Benzol: <hitman84> I thought it would be a good game to get into the database but without a definite result that isn't possible. The final position is very interesting.|
|Jan-11-06|| ||hitman84: <Benzol>yes very much so i'm still analysing and black seems to have some problems too he is not able to get the f pawn in time first he has to play a5 then white plays f7 here whites idea is g4! followed by h4 this looks dangerous black has to be careful before going for grabbing c,a pawns.|

|Oct-03-08|| ||GrahamClayton: Whiteley won the inaugral English Senior Championhip in early 2008 with a score of 4.5/5. It was his first national title since winning the British U/21 championship in 1965.|

|Jun-18-11|| ||Richard Taylor: There is a game where Rodney Phillips (of NZ) beat Whiteley. When I saw the game I thought remembered his name from the 60s. Maybe in a mag called Chess I used to get. Good on him for being the 2008 Senior Champ!!|
|Jul-08-14|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: Sad news. Andrew has passed on.|

And several recent photographs here:
<I remember him being a regular pipe smoker, back in the days when smoking at the board was allowed, which I guess explains the mouth cancer.>
Also, there's a game annotated by him here:
