Malcolm Grimmer v Jeremy Menadue

Invitation tournament (St. Just), 1988, Rd.1

This was played in a six-player all-play-all tournament hosted by our former president, Aelred Horn. Malcolm, for many years a regular in the Emigrant Cup and for the Godolphin club at Helston, was capable of beating anyone on his day, as this game shows.
