Large v Crouch

Many thanks to Hugo Roman for sending in this game, which was played in the Youth Championship in London 1971. We think it highly likely that the player with black was our own late member, IM Colin Crouch. Even if this is not the case, the game is still an efficient and enjoyable miniature!
