I had travelled by train from the Gorges Open in the Loire to Dieren with all my camping equipment. Chess in Holland is seen in a much better light than in the U.K. Most competitors stay at the Sportcamp, 20 minutes from the venue, a spacious hall in the town centre. Tents, campervans and caravans took over the sports fields and the hospitality was superb. The bar provided meals all day. There was hot water to do your washing and they supplied a full programme of social and sporting events to support the chess. Now they charge for camping but back when I played it was free. This game was their 'game of the day' for day 3 which delighted me as there were many highly rated Grandmasters playing and to have the diagram position after my 18th move on the front cover of the daily bulletin was special.} 1.

I said the other winner was welcome to it as I could not physically carry any more with me!} 1-0
