Amateur to IM: Author!


Our extended look at Amateur to IM will conclude over the weekend, with an exclusive interview with the book's author.

It will be by no means the first time Jonathan Hawkins has been featured here at Marsh Towers. We covered some of his early successes back in 2006, when he was first making a habit of winning Open tournaments on the UK weekend circuit.

Two years later he bravely agreed to take part in a correspondence game against the Rest of the World, the moves of which were relayed both here and on the Chess Links Project website.

More recently, Jonathan supported the 2nd Mike Closs Memorial Tournament and gave a talk on one of his games against Stuart Conquest.

Demonstrating a crushing victory

He didn't win the quiz though!
Stay tuned for the forthcoming interview.
