100th British Championship (http://englishchess.org.uk/BCC/) starts tomorrow with 13 GM's competing. English born Aussie IM Gary Lane is playing, and he is also taking part in a World record bullet match (http://englishchess.org.uk/BCC/world-record-to-be-set-at-the-100th-british-chess-championships/) with GM Keith Arkell as a warm up to the event.

Gary Lane has started with 2/2, but now has a tough one tonight against GM Stephen Gordon. British Champs is beginning to shape up nicely (http://gorkachc.blogspot.com.au/2013/07/some-midweek-chess.html) :)

By the way, has anyone else noticed Smerdon is in action in the Politiken Cup in Denmark? He's near the top on 4.5/5. I'm following his games live on TWIC (http://www.theweekinchess.com/live), he is currently playing live against against Jan Timman.

The following article was published in the 41st year of my chess column in the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday 5th August 2013.

Former Australian Champion IM Gary Lane of Sydney has scored 3.5/6 in the 100th British Championship in Torquay, Devon after round 6.

As usual a lot of debate (http://gorkachc.blogspot.com.au/2013/08/rest-day-at-british.html) around the fringes concerning the quality of the Championships. Just like in Australia, the debate hinges on the quality versus quantity issue.

Where do you stand?

Gary not doing so great now. 5/10.

I hope he got the world record! Yet to see a report...

There's a report and link in the ACF Newsletter! That said I don't know if it has been ratified by Guinness.

Indeed there is! Thanks, Kev.
