It’s often said that it’s a small world, however that seems to hold particularly true in the upper-echelons of London chess where our newest member, Marios, recognised a recent opponent of Sheikh’s in their last Thames Valley game.
It turns out that Marios had played – and beaten – the 185-rated Timothy Seymour in the rarefied surroundings of the High Wycombe Open in 2012.
Luckily for us, he’s kept an annotated and well-commentated version of the game which you can view here.
It’s a hard-fought and ultimately satisfying game, so thank to Marios for sharing with us! If any other members have a particularly memorable game they’d like to share (victories or defeats – we can learn from both!), do please get in touch so that we can share with all our members.
