Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-14-09  alexrawlings: Does anyone know anything about this guy? My girlfriend recently bought me his <Better Chess for Club Players> from a charity shop and I'm really enjoying it. It has old school notation (P-k4, etc) and was published in 1982. Anyway, as a club player (ECF 140, under the most recent grading system) I'm finding it helpful.
Sep-14-09  alexrawlings: an ECF of 140 translates to an ELO of 1770 I think, if anyone reads my earlier post and wonders.
Sep-14-09  OverTheHill: I believe he played for Kingston & Thames Valley Chess Club.

If you can get hold of either edition of Secrets of Grandmaster Play (which is really the predecessor to Nunn's Best Games), it's well worth a go; his style is clear and easy to read, with plenty of useful ideas on the way.

Dec-18-11  wordfunph: he also authored Exploring the Endgame published in 1992 by American Chess Promotions..

Dec-18-11  King Death: < perfidious:...If you can get hold of either edition of Secrets of Grandmaster's well worth a go...>

This was a very good book.

Aug-15-16  TheFocus: Stewie's dad.
Aug-15-20  Nosnibor: Happy birthday Peter. Recall playing you in the Annual Paignton Congress in September 1973 when our game finished as a draw and you went on to take first prize with 6/7 half a point ahead of Michael Stean whereas I took a shared third prize with 5/7.All three of us went through unbeaten.
