Chess on the Rocks!
|Jimmy 'the grinder' Simpson in full catalogue pose. With a shocked looking Eric Schiller alongside, if the name rings a bell, you've probably read one of his 100+ books! Why was he shocked? Walton said, "I had just bollocked him for his book that missed a mate in one (a thick one giving a page to each opening!!) He was temporarily stunned." Notice England's No 1 and world No 9 Mickey Adams trying to get in on the action far left. Don't you just hate those 'glory hunters'|
|Simpson v Player 1-0||Man of many talents, 'the grinder' tinkles the ivory's while simultaneously smoking a small tree!|

|CW in action, he even finds time to play Sudoku during his games. (Its not really a Sudoku game) Its a marvellous device called a MonRoi its the future methinks have a look.||Jimmy playing another 'easy' opponent WGM Nana Dzagnidze from Georgia Elo 2463 about 233 ECF See what happened here.|
|Mickey Adams on board 2 with the young American super-talent Hikaru Nakamura alongside.|
