British Championships Day 6

The top seeds played to their ratings today, overcoming lesser graded opponents.
Jones beat Matthew Turner, Howell beat James Holland (who was unable to achieve a 3rd draw against GM opposition), and Gordon got a point against Marcus Harvey.


Rating TPR 16
1GM Jones, Gawain C

2655 2784
1 1 1 1 ½ 1
2GM Howell, David W

2620 2627
½ 1 1 ½ 1 1
3GM Gordon, Stephen

2539 2564
1 1 1 0 1 1

Gordon has lost to Jones but won his other 5 games (albeit against untitled players). So presumably Howell and Jones will play each other on Monday.

IM Jonathon Hawkins and GM Keith Arkell are each on 4.5 points. Arkell has played Jones and Hawkins has played Howell.

Jack Rudd beat Robert Shaw in another quick tactical affair. He joins a pack of players on 4/6 that includes GM Stuart Conquest who is the 3rd player (after Jones and Howell) to remain unbeaten in the tournament.

Yorkshire Chess have yet to publish a review but I expect round 6 will be covered here.
