GM Walter Browne tribute

GM Walter Browne tribute

I remember watching Walter Browne on the BBC's Master game. He was possibly the most intense chess player I had ever observed, entirely serious and focused.  In time trouble he was about to promote and suddenly realised that there was not an extra queen. Realising that there was none to be had he upturned a rook and slammed in onto the queening square. I knew then he was a kind of force of nature, highly competitive and single minded.  The following is one of Walters favourite games, played against the then soviet champion Vladimir Savon, who had just won the soviet championship in 1971.
