"The undoubted English success was IM Andrew Ledger's superb third place on 6½/9, a score which also gave him his first GM norm. After losing the first round to Tkachiev, Ledger scored 6½/7, including four consecutive victories over GMs Brodsky (Ukraine), Norwood (England), Hector (Sweden) and Baburin (Ireland)! Harriet Hunt achieved her final WGM norm by drawing with Hector in the final round." (BCM, Dec 1996, p645)

"Sedgwick king for a day: The British Chess Federation’s international director David Sedgwick, ranked only 334th in England, scored the upset of the Isle of Man’s Monarch Assurance Open when he drew with the Ukrainian grandmaster Mikhail Brodsky, writes Leonard Barden. Keith Arkell, the former Midlands champion, shares the lead with the top seed Vladimir Tkachiev from Kazakhstan after four rounds of the £10,000 event." (The Guardian, 9 Oct 1996, p25, Sport in Brief)
