Now that David Howell has wrapped up the British Championships with a round to spare, the only interest now lies with who will win the prizes in our Prediction Competition! Angus French and Ian Lamb both scored 56 points so the gap between them did not change. However Rich Archer had a shocker and finished in last place for Round 10, meaning that he’ll need to get the 20 point bonus for getting 39 correct to stand any chance of coming top! Michael Fernandez still holds a very narrow lead in the Week 2 Competition but that could all change in the final round!

49/50 of you picked Danny Gormally to beat Jasper Tambini, only one brave soul thought that he would repeat his giant-killing exploits of yesterday. It’s a tough life at the British Championships when you get a double-black against Grandmasters! On the top five boards, the next most popular pick was for Bogdan Lalic to draw with Gyula Meszaros, which came true after just 8 moves! Ten of you unwisely picked that game to have a decisive result…

None of you predicted that the game between Simon Williams and Marcus Harvey would end in a draw, the only correct result that nobody picked. There were only two upsets across all the boards in Round 10 – three of you foresaw Malcolm Armstrong’s win over Ali Jaunooby while a lot more of you selected Guy Moss to beat Hugh Murphy, the picks were almost evenly split among wins for either player.

Don’t forget to submit your predictions for the final round by 3pm today! If you haven’t entered yet, you could still win free entry to an e2e4 weekend event by scooping the Best Individual Round prize, so have a go!
