Chris Derrick not only came an excellent third in the Swiss Pairs but also won the opening Pairs on the Thursday evening. He was partnering Tommy Brass. (Hence the expression "Where there's Derrick, there's Brass"!)
108 pairs took part over 12 matches in two days in the Swiss Pairs. I unwittingly gave Chris a helping 17-3 win in Match 10 at Table 2, the start of my downfall to 29th place, one below Sandy Davies and Dave Robinson.
