Which is not too bad for winning a chess event.
In the spring of '72 I won a flask for coming 2nd in a local event.
Then Fischer happened. (the folliwing year it was two flasks!).
I do remember winning a chess set in the mid 70's.
A chess set? 'Oh Good, I don't have one of those.'.
Think ...[text shortened]... e most I won was a share of £450 divided by 3. Which was OK.
At the time I was earning £30 p/w.
100K grand prize?
I call BS here, it isn't a millionaire tourney, it's a .1 Millionaire tourney.
Wesley is changing his last name to Soso.
