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
including this "attractive win" in Rd 6. C.Shephard was black

The Lord John Cup: 2.5/9 (won by Hort). The picture of the contestants on p.553 of the BCM V.97 leaves out "eyes-closed Lambert". Lambert drew with Mestel, and beat Torre, but his most famous game was against Kotov.
In this position Kotov (White) sealed. Lambert offered a draw, but when Kotov told him that he intended to continue 42.Re6+ Kd7 43.Rxe8 Kxe8 44.Re6+ followed by Rxe4 and Rxg4, Lambert resigned. In fact, 43 ...g3 wins.
He started hearing voices in 1980 and was later diagnosed with Huntingdon's Chorea.
