    My generation still going strong. Played Michael Adams way back in the 1984 U18 Cornish championship. Played would be more accurately translated as Trashed by, of course.

    It was quite amazing really had two world class players, and the generation slightly older Miles, Speelman, Nunn etc not far behind. The level of support for chess in the 80’s in the UK was just as poor as now, as far as I remember.
