I agree with Tim, the vacant live boards should be used today for the over-65.
The British Championship website doesn't appear to have been updated to show which tournaments began today. It is only advertising the U8 and the three Rapidplays which started yesterday.
Missing are mention of the Juniors U9, U12, U14, U16 & Seniors +65.
To keep track of when a particular event runs one has to refer to the schedule which has to be downloaded as a .pdf document.
Otherwise, one has to cycle through each of the events on chess-results.com on which the events do seem to be kept up to date by the respective tournament controllers: http://chess-results.com/tnr231043.aspx?lan=1&art=0&flag=30&wi=821
It is disappointing not to be able to follow the moves in any of the games despite having the technology to do so.
We can't blame the webmaster since he can't personally manage the site 24/7. Should he, perhaps, have a deputy when he takes Sunday off?
