British Championships Day 1

It's been a while since any content was posted here, mainly owing to work commitments. I intend to remedy this starting right now.

Readers may be aware that the 2012 British Chess Championships are underway. The Yorkshire chess website has some coverage of the round 1 results. It also has an excellent overview of the Yorkshire-based competitors.

IM Andrew Martin has a video introduction to this year's competition, and has already posted his "Game of the Day" for Round 1 which features GM Matthew Turner (of Millfield School) beating Sniper expert Charlie Storey.

The South-west's IM Jack Rudd got off to a poor start, losing to Jim Burnett. Jim now has to face even tougher opposition in the form of IM Jonathon Hawkins.
