I am a chess history buff. I agree with Gligoric, who said that chess serves best as a hobby, and can take up too much time if a person gives it too much importance.

akiba82: Why no coverage of the British chess championship? Whatever happened to the special relationship?

akiba82: Why no coverage of the 2017 British Chess Championship? Lets get with it

akiba82: Is going to cover the 2016 britsh championship or not?
   Jan-25-16 Mackenzie vs J Mason, 1885 (replies)
akiba82: It seems the final moves of the game were actually 41... Rc6 42. dc6 Qg3 0-1. This makes sense inasmuch as white has no defense to 43... Nh3# unless one includes the computer like 43. Qd5+ losing the queen. This is the version given in Zukertort's Chess Monthly periodical for ...
   Jan-04-16 S Williams vs D Gormally, 2016 (replies)
akiba82: A fine victory by Williams over his bĂȘte noire and close friend Gormally. Since he is a point out of the lead with only one round remaining it isn't likely Williams will be able to win the tournament. Still, I don't envy his opponent in the last round. Williams is definitely out ...
   Jan-03-16 S Williams vs J Anderson, 2016 (replies)
akiba82: Williams is getting ready for his stretch run, and a high placing at Hastings.
   Aug-11-15 S Williams vs D Howell, 2015 (replies)
akiba82: There may be a lot better practical chances for White after moves like 18 Nc3 or 18 Ng5 than I realized. One of the hazards of patzers attempting to critique gms I guess. Any way, check out his commentary to get a better handle on this game. His chess may be erratic at times but ...
   Aug-08-15 S Williams vs J Emms, 2015 (replies)
akiba82: In the final position a possible continuation is 35... Qh6 36 Bh6 Rg8 37 g5 Nd4 38 Qe7 Bc8 39 Qf6+ Kh7 40 Qf7+ Kh8 41 g6 with unavoidable mate.
   Aug-06-15 J Emms vs M Hebden, 2015
akiba82: A nice win by Hebden to put him in position for a high place if he can win his last game. Hebden's solid defense netted him a pawn, and he had no difficulty converting.
   Aug-06-15 British Championship (2015) (replies)
akiba82: Howell has white against Hebden in the last round and is a heavy favorite since he is rated 200 points higher, is much younger, and has the white pieces to boot. Nevertheless I would prefer to see the old campaigner Hebden score an upset. His quirky inventive style appeals to me.
