Indeed, wonder if Kramnik will only play white in an attempt to improve his rating?

Good luck to you, Alan, and all the English players; have fun

I suppose you mean 3Cs since White Rose is only half English?

Tough draws as expected; interesting board order for 3Cs; good luck to all

Kramnik missing round 1 (where he would have had black)

The European ‘ hired hands ‘ Club Cup would be a better way of describing this ridiculous event.

Well, its about as good as many of these club teams ;)

WR have occasionally talked about going 'Yorkshire purist' but they obviously wouldn't be half as strong a team if they were to do that. Especially if they did it by birth.....

No live games for the two English clubs, but chessresults currently shows 3Cs 0-3 down and White Rose 0-4 down (including Peter Wells).

Adam Ashton avoided the whitewash for 3Cs with a draw against GM Vladimir Malakhov rated 2691.

White Rose are 4-0 down, worse on board 2 but 6 looks promising.

....in which 14/18 round 1 matches ended 5-1 or better; and 6/18 were whitewashes. Silly nonsense
