Glenn Edwin John Lambert, 1957-2003

Glenn Lambert grew up in Portsmouth. He took up chess when 11. He had a calm positional style. When he started playing blindfold chess he soon progressed to playing 4-board simuls.

He attended a 6th form college but he wasn't one of the Oxbridge bunch. He didn't complete A-levels, preferring to concentrate on chess. His rise followed that of Miles. For a while in the mid-70s he was one of the UK's most promising juniors. Then Nigel Short emerged. Here's a brief outline of his career


He started hearing voices in 1980 and was later diagnosed with Huntingdon's Chorea.
