Simon Maydew, Research Director at BMG Research takes on Chess Grandmaster Michael Adams at the weekend. Adams, ranked 16th in world and number 1 for England is playing a number of matches in Telford on Saturday. Simon commentating on the game said “I’ll obviously be a bit in awe of him but I want to give a good account of myself especially as my children will be watching. I gave the game up for 20 years shortly after leaving University and many of the team I captained back then went onto to become Masters and International Masters. Its something I now regret dropping”. We wish him luck and the encounter is not too bruising!
