British Championships

The 2008 British Championships has started in Liverpool. Top seed for the event is GM Gawain Jones, a recent and popular visit to these shores. While missing the absolute top of British Chess the event is still pretty solid with the top 10 seeds rated above 2500 and the next ten above 2400.
The whole event is quite an extravaganza, with 26 separate events being held over the 2 week periods, including events based on rating and age, as well as weekend events and single week events.
Full coverage of the event, including live games, can be found on the Britchess08 website.
