  whiteshark: "Peter was a fantastic chess player — drawing with World Champion Vishy Anand in a simultaneous display aged 8.

He won the UK Chess Challenge on two occasions.

Peter’s first IM norm was at the Uxbridge Master in 2009. Around this time he had a remarkable run of nine games against GMs without being defeated.

Peter’s second IM norm was achieved at the World University Championships with one round to spare. He also had some fantastic results for Millfield School.

Grandmaster Matthew Turner recalls 2007-08 where Peter was “by far the best player in our team and in the final we were [outrated] on every board, but his victory on board one clinched it for us.”

We have no doubt Peter would have achieved IM and more but in the latter years of his life he was focusing on his career."
