Aussie international master Gary Lane currently has 4.5 points after seven games in the ongoing British Chess Championships. So far, Lane has lost only one game to GM Simon Williams.
Jointly leading the event, with GM David Howell, is current Melbourne resident GM Gawain Jones! Both these guys have 6 points apiece. In the fifth game, Gawain defeated GM Aaron Summerscale on the black side of a KID. It looked all so easy. Just follow the pattern, maybe a little cuddle with Sue in-between moves, and BANG!
