100th British – Rd. 2

There were no great suprises in yesterday’s 1st Rd. Among the titled players, just Glenn Flear and Richard Palliser dropped a half point, but that will probably be of little significance at the end of the day.

There will be Game of the Day awards in the shape of £20 cheques, to be determined by Andrew Martin and presented at the start of each subsequent round. The Rd. 1 prize goes to Gawain Jones for his game vs Reid (see on-line). Unfortunately, he was late for the presentation at 2.30, but pleased to find it on his table when he did arrive.

Junior Coaching:

As in recent years, coaching is available for all juniors, free at the point of need, but funded by a very generous bequest by the late John Robinson. This year, it is being held by two senior players; Sheila Jackson, former British Ladies Champion (1975 / ‘78 / ‘80 & ‘81) and   Vaidnyanathan Ravikumar. They may be found at the far end of  the auditorium. Ask in the Office for details of times and availability.

Happy in their work!
