It is with sadness that we report the death of Dr Brian Dudley of Stourbridge, former president Worcestershire Chess Association and captain of its first team in the 1970s. We understand he died on Saturday 30th September aged 86. He was Worcestershire individual champion for the first time in 1961 and was also champion in 1965, 1970 and 1972.

Brian was an expert on the Dutch defence. Here is a game I played against his Dutch 16 years ago and is a good example of his dangerous play. Game is here.
