As usual, in between doing pairings and eating, I am taking photos and putting them on my Flickr feed - if you'd like to see them click here.  If you have any special requests (like 'stop taking photos'), let me know and I will do my best.

Brendan O'Gorman is playing in the Holiday tournament, and his lovely pictures always tell a story - they are here.  If you are considering playing in any chess event it pays off to do some research by looking at Brendan's archive - you get a really good idea of the playing conditions and what there is to do and see locally.

International Master Lawrence Trent has started a blog on, and since he's playing in the Jersey Masters I expect he'll be writing about the event very soon!

Here is a list of FIDE registered tournaments in England. There will be a separate entry for each section of each event (e.g. Golders Green Rapidplay = 4 sections, 4 registrations). If you see any of mine missing, do let me know! 

Scroll down to the bottom to access the archive of events. 

Only games where at least one of the players has a published standard FIDE rating will be rated, and included in the rating calculations of the unrated player. Where both players are rated, the game will affect both players and will be included in the calculations for both players.
