Charles Bucknell

Charles ”Charlie Chuck” Bucknell is an enthusiast of all things to do with classics, bridge and halo. Having previously been both a bridge and chess player, four years at Durham university guided him towards the correct path and he has now represented England on the U26 team in international tournaments on multiple occasions. Never afraid of experimenting with system or solving squeeze problems, I would caution any player who plays believing Charlie’s weak 2 vulnerable openings ‘must surely have at least one honour’. Charlie started working for the EBU as Tournaments Administrator at the beginning of September 2019, perhaps with the ulterior motive of finding more tournaments that he could enter.
