Results in round 2 again largely with rating. It's going to get interesting now though - round 3 draw about to be published.

(I did have a query about whether the live board in round 2 Buckley-Ryszard was correct. It was indeed agreed a draw.)

An overnight windows update on the control PC (grrr) appears to have affected the live boards this morning. Apologies, we're working on it.

[Highly technical fix sorted it - turn off PC and ...]

If the opening moves are correct on board 1 then we should be in for an entertaining game.

Indeed, the hackers watching in the cafeteria are delighted with the possibilities.

Nice attacking game by Mark Hebden. But can he win after sacrificing a rook for three pawns ? Probably !

At move 33, it looks like Hebden's bishop on c6 is going to be lost to a check. And Hebden has resigned.

And now attention turns to board 2 Arkell-Horton. The clock times are correct by the way - Keith is 1 hour ahead.

Four players on 3.5 then?! With three of them due Black, one is in for a pleasant surprise.

Arkell-Horton was drawn, so three on 3.5 going into last round - Bucknell, Cox and Merry.

All right, three then, said a man who clearly believes all the Keith propaganda.
