Summer Time

Here it is Summer, fewer people at work, edging into komkommertijd.

Not much chess going on for me personally, but quite a few events.

I was particularly taken with the British Championship.

This time around is the first time Michael Adams and Nigel Short have been in it at the same time, and it looks like they will face each other fairly soon as they are currently second and third after David Howell.
