The inofficial 3rd European Microcomputer Chess Championship was held September 9-12, 1982 at the Barbican Centre in London, United Kingdom as part of the Personal Computer World Show [1], also known as the 5th PCW Microcomputer Chess Championship.

Due to time pressure, it was decided to adjudicate all unfinished games at move 53. This set the tournament director, Stuart Reuben, some complicated adjudication problems in the course of the four days. Sole winner with 6/7 was Advance 2.4 by Dave Wilson and Mike Johnson, running on a home constructed bit-slice machine [2].
