 LEICESTERSHIRE   v   DERBYSHIRE.       Dec 13th 2008.  Where else but chess could you see a real blood-and-guts contest - at a senior level - between such a legendary figure and a rising star over 60 years his junior?  Emma looked like she'd taken a hammer blow early on, but came back instantly with one of her own, and quite a crowd gathered round one of the very last games to finish and see her lay the old warrior low. Her victory  tied the match at 7-7 and the final 8-8 was a good result given the opposition.
