roberts partner: There wasn't any 'Cambridge Open 1952'. The game was played at Cambridge BUCA 1950.
 
   Jun-01-20 A Knight (replies)
 
roberts partner: That sounds a correct identification. My mental picture of AH Knight from those two Southsea tournaments is that he was a small, slight man with dark hair, polite and correct to his opponents, and a chain smoker. Britbase has an additional game from Southsea 1949 where ...
 
   May-02-20 Magnus Carlsen Invitational (2020) (replies)
 
roberts partner: <This event's been sucking up all the oxygen of publicity. Haven't seen a single mention yet of the <FIDE Chess.com Online Nations Cup> https://www.theguardian.com/world/2... https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2...
 
   Apr-17-20 Fischer vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
 
roberts partner: The black dressed player peering over the board behind Fischer is actually Julius Szabo of Romania. Take it from me, I played Julius Szabo at that Olympiad in Leipzig 1960.
 
   Mar-08-20 NN vs B Goulding Brown, 1912 (replies)
 
roberts partner: I am now reliably informed that the game ('A friendly game at Cambridge University CC won by B Goulding Brown') was first published on page 558 of the March 1912 Chess Amateur. I have seen a photocopy of the actual page. Therefore the game was played in 1912 at the latest, ...
 
   Mar-04-20 Otto Friedmann
 
roberts partner: That's Otto Friedman for sure at London 1946. I played him many times in blitz and in tournament games. Some reports misspelt his name. Tall, bald, with remnants of ginger hair and a deep booming voice. A bit pedantic but an intelligent and well educated man.
 
   Feb-27-20 Tolush vs Thompson John Crittenden, 1954
 
roberts partner: Thompson is the player's surname, not his first name as wrongly stated above by chessgames.com. From Wiki: The term "Hippopotamus Defence" was also used by the English amateur J. C. Thompson to describe a system of his devising, where Black played c6, d6, e6, and f6; ...
 
   Oct-11-19 Eltaj Safarli
 
roberts partner: Looks like you mixed up two names. Carlsen drew today with Alexey Sarana. Safarli won today against Maxim Rodshtein.
 
   Oct-06-19 Holman Linnell Brooke (replies)
 
roberts partner: Remember Frank Kitto, "8-year sabbaticals", and Plymouth 1948.
 
   Aug-04-19 Henry Ernest Atkins (replies)
 
roberts partner: I saw Atkins in person in August 1954 when he visited the British Championship at Nottingham during the sixth round, played on the middle Saturday in the same hall as the famous Nottingham 1936 tournament. Atkins was accompanied by the BCF secretary Harold Meek and other ...
