This match was the subject of much discussion at The Exchange, Twickenham, on Thursday evening. I’d tweeted during the afternoon that Twickenham residents had a choice between watching this match or going to folk & guitar legend Martin Simpson‘s gig. I chose the latter, and was amazed when Martin related my tweet (along with another tweet revealing that songwriter Leon Rosselson had been a strong teenage chess player in the 1950s) to the audience. My life is now complete.
But onto what you really want to know – the result of the match.
