Mike L

Mike Levene (170): A dedicated student of chess, Mike plays in a refreshingly classical style – no flank openings here!


Peter Kirby (177): Peter also plays for Guernsey and has represented them at five Chess Olympiads.


Christopher Jones (162): I was in the Dundee High School team that won the Sunday Times Championship in 1969 and in the Scottish Glorney Cup team in 1969 and 1970. Since then it’s been a downward slide, though I did gain the GM title in 2012 for composing chess problems.

John Richards (167): John has been playing for Horfield for longer than anyone else cares to remember (but was actually 1983). Never quite managing to get to a 180 grade, he is resigned to the fact that he probably never will. He set up the original Bristol League website and has been, at various times League General Secretary, Recruitment and Publicity, Chess Times Editor, Bristol 4NCL Manager and an ECF Arbiter. He is the B team captain.

Jon Fisher (152): Played for Horfield since 2011 and is the Publicity and Recruitment Officer for the Bristol & District Chess League. Has been known to play 1. b3 on occasion…


Brent Perrin (151): Self-confessed speed-chess addict, Brent seems to have mastered the long game as well.
