Mr Dodgy Invitational

Post by Tim Harding » Fri Jun 12, 2020 5:53 pm

It's live online apparently.
There has been this running joke for months on chess24 about this mysterious figure.

So the question of the day (answers please!): WHO IS MR DODGY?

When they refer to Little Bolton, Scotland, don't they really meant Little Scotland, Bolton? That's consistent with a playing history which includes Congresses in the North West and playing in the Manticores squad.

If it is the same guy, then Mike played for Crusaders (Blackburn) and for 1 season (?) for the Manticores, so he could have lived in Blackrod
