London Chess Classic

This post may not be about art, but the artwork above is mine (© Coxsoft 1987). I wrote Learn Chess for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K more than 20 years ago. Believe it or not, you can still use it online at World of Spectrum (CLICK). That's the illustration; now here's the news. Tomorrow, 8 December, the London Chess Classic 2009 opens at the Olympia Conference Centre, Kensington, and continues until 15 December (title link). This will be the highest level chess tournament in London for 25 years, with England's four leading grandmasters taking on world chess champions. The price of admission is £10 per adult or £50 for a season ticket for all seven rounds. Children are allowed in free to help promote the game. So, if you have a budding chess cherub, this is the place to take him or her.

20 years ago surely, the Spectrum wasn't released until 1982 :)

Hi, Sparkes

You're absolutely right. Relief! I'm not as old as I thought I was.

It just seems like 30 years. I'll correct it.
