[BCM, September 1980, p465] "BCF CONGRESS BRIGHTON AUGUST 4-16 - by P.C.Griffiths - The British Chess Federation Congress, sponsored for the third year running by the well-known firm of stock-brokers, Grieveson, Grant & Co., was held this time at the new Brighton Centre. Brighton is a popular venue for the congress, having staged it in 1972 and 1977, but the building which was made available this year was a big improvement; in fact I cannot remember having seen more suitable accommodation. One large main hall was easily sufficient to take all the players and conditions were excellent. In addition there were analysis rooms, offices, a restaurant, a bar and a bookstall all within the same complex.

"The total number of entries was around 480, a slight drop on last year’s Chester congress, though that was probably a record. The British Championship itself included one Grandmaster and seven International Masters among its forty competitors and the play was interesting enough, though at times it seemed a little subdued, perhaps inevitably when compared with the excitement of last year. The result was a tie between the favourite John Nunn and Bill Hartston, and these two will play a match later in the year to decide the title. Both played solidly without losing a game or even getting into any real difficulties; Hartston’s high-class endgame technique was much in evidence, while Nunn won several games with his more vigorous attacking style.

"Third and fourth places were shared between the 1978 Champion Jonathan Speelman and David Rumens. Speelman was recovering well from an indifferent start and beginning to look like a strong contender for the title, when he lost a game by reacting wrongly to one of Basman’s peculiar openings and was thus knocked out of the race for first place. As for Rumens, he is always an entertaining player to watch, whether he is winning or losing, and here he had one of his best results ever, his last round game against the otherwise undefeated Chandler being specially brilliant.

"Of the four players who shared the remaining prizes, the two young IMs Shaun Taulbut and Murray Chandler both returned sound performances, while last year’s Champion Robert Bellin had a relatively poor start, being in the middle reaches of the tournament for much of the time. However, he took his chances when they came and a strong finish left him with a respectable seven points. Basman’s play was highly original, as always; his willingness to try all kinds of new openings (as witness his extraordinary 1 e4 g5 2 d4 h6 defence, played not against weaker opponents, but when facing Nunn and Speelman!) undoubtedly adds to the interest of a tournament. The problem, of course, is that the results of such a style are bound to be unpredictable and his adoption of this opening in the critical last round was fatal to his hopes of first place."


[BCM, April 1981, p129-130] "The [1980] British Championship Play-off Match by W.R. Hartston [13-17 February 1981]

The RAC Club in Pall Mall was the venue for the long-awaited play-off match between John Nunn and William Hartston. The conditions of the match specified six games, with John Nunn taking the title if the final score was level, by virtue of his superior tie-split score from the Brighton Championship (Tie split was the sum of opponents’ scores, omitting highest and lowest). Both players had agreed to play all six games, even if the match was decided sooner.

"The match was a great success with all six games exciting struggles much enjoyed by the spectators who turned up to be entertained by Michael Stean’s commentaries. The sponsors, Grieveson Grant, deserve our thanks for adding to their sponsorship to enable this match to take place under such fine conditions."

Date Notes
4 March 1998 First posted on BritBase.
28 March 2019 Upgraded to provide a game viewer, crosstable and full results of all tournaments.
30 August 1980 Added 12 games from subsidiary sections, contributed by Brian Denman. One from the U14 section (Mandy Hepworth 1-0 Andrew Macmillan) and all 11 games played by Canon (Arthur) Eric Smith in the Major Open. The latter is rather wonderful because I've only just uploaded some games played by Canon Smith from the 1927/28 Hastings tournament! Such longevity...
