I'm always rather pleased to see these messy and high profile disputes, in the hope that the authorities will finally be persuaded to concede a more sensible method of claiming the draw. Doesn't seem to work, though.

They were in the playing hall when I finished at about 8:30. My game wasn't too far away I didn't pick up on anything unusual going on.
It must have taken quite some time to resolve the dispute.

Any more information about what actually happened in the Howell dispute?

Further kudos to Lancashire FM Glenn House, scalping a strong IM in Mateusz Kolosowski, rated 2448. Of the English contingent only Michael Adams beat a stronger player today. So far Glenn has beaten a GM, lost to World number 6, Anish Giri and beaten an IM. Not too shabby!

Glenn (TPR 2699) plays GM Wagner next who has only lost to Aronian so far

Round 4 ties involve various Indians against Adams, Howell, Jones & Williams. Then two stand-out games:

Short - Karjakin
Leko - Gormally

Glenn House picks up GM Dennis Wagner who seems to have found time to play this tournament while managing Huddersfield

Incidentally, this being the IoM, Manx Liberty and all that, where are they - the Manx Liberty GMs?

David Howell is a pawn up, but down to his increment Vs 30 mins for opponent!

David Howell has unfortunately blundered a piece on move 26. Needless to say, he was playing on increments.

A cunning trick but an annoying one for white all the same.
