The weather was fine and sunny as the British No 1 arrived in Bristol's Broadmead Shopping Centre to take on many players from the Bristol League. Playing well over 30 players under the marquee Mickey Adams won most of his games but had to concede one game due to blundering a Rook.
Amongst the lucky ones that managed Draws were Nigel Wilcox and Humphrey Andolo from Downend chess Club and Andy Pickering from Clifton Chess Club and Graham Wilkinson of Clevedon. I tested out Mickey in a Schliemann variation of the Spanish and should have got at least a Draw until he found the only move to salvage the game putting his Queen on Prise to steer the game his way.
A selection of photos can be viewed above as we prepare a cd which will contain hopefully all the games and over a 100 photos of the event.
Chris Beaumont's Blindfold event attracted many onlookers as he did what many would find impossible. Tyson Mordue and Megan Owens took on members of the public on large outdoor sets as a build up to the simul.
Many thanks go to the Event Organiser Pete Saunders & his wife who have put in a tremendous amount of effort to ensure the event was a success. Tel: 0117 9079215 firstname.lastname@example.org
