Last round today. All games start at 10:00 am, which allows for play-off for the British Championship, if needed.
Max Pert, who was playing in the U16 Championship which finished yesterday, today gets a game as a filler in the main British Championship. Thus, IM Richard Pert and his twin brother GM Nick Pert, and Richard’s son and daughter, Max and Nina Pert, are four players from the same family playing in a round of the British Championship simultaneously. Has this ever occurred before?
Keen Essex interest is also engaged in the Major Open and the Over 50, where FM Andrew Lewis (Major Open) and Essex Champion, FM Bob Eames (Over 50), are playing for top spot in their respective events. Andrew has White against Mikhail Sedykh, but Bob Eames has the tougher task, Black against GM Keith Arkell.
