Bob Wade


You may have read elsewhere about the death this morning of former British Chess Champion Bob Wade at the age of 87.

Bob had a strong interest in chess composition and came regularly to BCPS lectures, even on occasion presenting the lecture. As far as I’m aware he composed one problem:

R.G.Wade
Fairy Chess Review, June 1947

(= 16+13 )

Mate in 2

Dawson wrote:”The last moves must have been Pf7-f5, Bh3xSg4, Sf6-g4; so 1.Pxf5e.p.
So far as my 5700 collection of retros goes this is a technically NEW mechanism, though of course the block of passage square (f6) to one’s own S is well-known. The B-uncapture is the novelty.”
