    I loved the intro "It was the days of black and white television and milk carts drawn by horses."
    Well at least you had TV and I can still recall the smell of the horses rump.

    Good luck with the book, Bill.

    Hey Macho Mortensen, this one is for you!
    The rather notorious gentleman (*) in the picture won a State Chess Championship (not making it any easier for you by naming the State)
    not exactly in the early 70s but not that far apart anyway! Go on have a go! ( Gattaca stay out of this! )

    You are both correct and geez I thought this was a hard one!!!

    It was Paul Dozsa indeed.

    He won the 1977 NSW Championship

    Here's a scene of his well publicized arrest
