Sadly I have to report that
Clive Parker a former
Little Thatch and South Bristol player has recently died. Clive was an
active player back in the 80s & 90s with a grade of around 150. He had
a colourful personality and an attacking style of chess that often unnerved
strong opponents that he faced. Condolences go out to his family and friends
at this difficult time.
game from 1991 demonstrates Clive's style of play, having equalised as
Black and gained control of the c file, Clive gives up his queen which must
have come as a shock to his opponent. The outcome of the game was
never in doubt !
