In the early 90s Rachels studied at Oxford University for two years
He also played for the county side.
"Do you play chess?"
"Yes, but I prefer a game with a better chance of cheating."

Stuart Rachels' excellent, yet enigmatic book, left me with unanswered questions and a sense of what might have been. Definitely one to consider for your Christmas list!
