Tinsley in the first game of his 1955 Match with Oldbury moved into a 3 for 1. Is that what you are referring to?

Hi, Gene !

Yes, you absolutely right and your answer is 99% correct covering match, game and players :lol: 1% - match was played later, in 1958.

M. Tinsley vs D. Oldbury, WCM 1958, G1

5-9 ??? (18-22 is correct)

Alex, I put 1958 first and then changed it to 1955. They say your first thoughts are usually correct. I guess they were this time anyway.
