Nice finish at the British

GM Gawain Jones currently shares the lead with GM Stephen Gordon at the 2012 British Championship, with two rounds left to play. They are a point ahead of GM's Danny Gormally and David Howell.
In round 8 Jones found a nice way to finish his game against IM Jonathan Hawkins. The combination starts at move 40 and in the space of 5 moves Jones sacrifices all his pieces, with the exception of the queen, which is required to deliver checkmate.
