Bradford Chess Festival held in Honour of Late MP Marsha Singh

Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hi everyone, 

Here is this nice chess report from the United Kingdom, Bradford to be precise. The brothers of late Bradford MP Marsha Singh were among 125 keen amateur chess players who took on masters of the game. The Chesstival in the Park event, held around the Mirror Pool in Bradford’s City Park, was organised to mark the 125th anniversary of the Bradford International Chess Congress and to commemorate the life of Mr Singh, the former Labour MP for Bradford West, who died last year, and was himself a keen chess player. You can read the full report at Telegraph & Argus
Grandmaster Gawain Jones, last year’s British champion, and four International Masters, each took on 25 members of the public in simultaneous games. Among their opponents were Marsha Singh’s brothers, Nermal and Balbir.
