Happy Birthday FM Jimmy Adams (07-ii-1947) :D

Jimmy is acknowledged as one of the best chess writers. His three books on Chigorin, Zukertort and Breyer are superb.

He was also a strong and popular player on the London scene.

We might have to overlook his relatively recent New In Chess piece which as I recall fell rather short of his previous standards
"Do you play chess?"
"Yes, but I prefer a game with a better chance of cheating."
