Arkell has beaten Nelson (0-1, 51) if you're looking at the official site, though Chess24 still has them stuck on move 41.

Similarly Phil Brooks is beating Hebden on Chess24, but has in fact lost on the official site.

Phil has certainly lost now, but it only just happened.

That's what I suspected (along with something like being in a wheelchair, that is the most common reason). Does that mean that the lighting in the rest of the venue is not up to scratch?

Hebden needs to be close to an exit, so that he can nip out for a quick fag between moves!
