A couple of days a ago I received a phone call from an excited friend. The conversation went as follows:

Friend: “Robert, you’ll never guess what has happened!”
Robert: “What?”
Friend: “You have a game published in today’s Saturday Age Chess Column.”
Robert: “Impossible! I haven’t played a tournament game for 15 years and I haven’t died so why would they publish one of my games?”
Friend: “You may not have died but John Hanks has – aged 83 years he passed away a couple of weeks ago.”
Robert: “Oh No! Not my 12 move loss to Hanks in the 1975 Interclub competition?”
Friend: “No. Your 45 move loss to Hanks in the 1974 Australian Chess Championship.”
