British Championship Round 8: Jones – Hawkins

More from the British Championship and a brilliant win for Gawain Jones. The real problem in playing against Jones is his outstanding tactical ability which was certainly in evidence in the closing stages.

The last round pairings promise an interesting finish. Stephen Gordon has played a brilliant tournament and leads by half a point, but has a much tougher opponent than Jones in the last round. A draw would guarantee at least a share for first and a play off for the title. But a win will finish matters in one fell swoop.
