A small number of local players are participating in the top section at Guernsey . Today (Tues.) is Rd. 3 and both Brian Hewson (Tiverton) and Meyrick Shaw (Exmouth are on maximum 2/2 so cannot avoid the big boys any longer. Hewson is on top board taday facing GM Mark Hebden, while Shaw is on Bd. 3 facing the Bulgar, GM Marian Petrov.
These games may be watched live on http://www.guernseychessclub.org.gg/festival/festival.htm
Thanks are due to Ivor Annetts (Tiverton) for the tip-off.
