Same ELO in my mid-40s as when I was 14 years old, but a much better player (don't laugh too loud) thanks to some Silicon on the desktop.
Spot when the next Ivanchuk and Anand were born:
Miles and Hebden.
Biggest regrets? Just two.
Forgetting to ask Tony Miles (RIP) to sign the scoresheet after he beat me in 1984. It was like playing a combination of God and Mike Tyson!
Tony had a powerful physical presence at the board and to be honest I felt intimidated and played so passively it's too embarrassing to show you.
But it did take him 70+ moves, still below average for Tony .-)
Screwing up a win against Peter Large when we were leading the Hackney Open in 1983 with 3/3.
Andy Warhol was correct, we all have our 15 minutes of fame:
7.5 minutes are thanks to Leonard Barden - who BTW deserves a knighthood for services to British Chess - who kindly published a tactical finish (Qf7:+) in the London Evening Standard in 1980.
The other 7.5 thanks to Harry Golombek publishing a win on the white side of a Spanish Bc5 against the then current British U-18 champion Waddingham.
Whatever happened to Graham?
