Bristol Chess Times – March 1993

The March edition of Bristol Chess Times in 1993 had a number of hot topics including a debate as to how chess clubs could benefit from the Short vs. Kasparov World Championship match.  John Richards again provides a downloadable PDF for British League Chess historians.


Highlights in March 1993 included:

  • The emerging split in world chess and its consequences on the game;
  • Downend A, Grendal A, South Bristol B, Hanham B, Sun Life B and Thornbury B all leading the respective divisions from 1 – 6;
  • Chess being discussed on Radio Bristol (a big deal without the Internet!)
  • Trialling of the game fee pilot scheme
  • Some lovely game analysis from Steve Boniface and Tyson Mordue

John has been playing for Horfield for longer than anyone else cares to remember (but was actually 1983). Never quite managing to get to a 180 grade, he is resigned to the fact that he probably never will. He set up the original Bristol League website and has been, at various times League General Secretary, Recruitment and Publicity, Chess Times Editor, Bristol 4NCL Manager and an ECF Arbiter.
