Howard Staunton was the iconic polymath who essentially founded British chess. He was the dominant player of his time and after his 1843 victory against St Amant in Paris he would undoubtedly have been hailed as world champion, had anyone thought of creating the title at that time. Staunton's name also goes down into history as the man after whom the standard Staunton pattern chess pieces are named.The year 2003 was the 175th anniversary of the foundation of Simpson's in the Strand, the great 19th century home of chess. The Staunton Society, therefore, decided to organise a chess tournament to celebrate both Staunton and this great venue. This book gives all the games and a potted history of chess in London. The greatest London events are recorded as well as games played in London by every World Champion. Raymond Keene OBE, chess correspondent of The Times, was London's first official Grandmaster. Artist Barry Martin is the Honorary Secretary of the Staunton Society.This book also includes all the games from the second Staunton Tournament.
