Today is a rest day in the World Championship between Anand and Carlsen. The first four rounds have all ended in draws. The last game was the most interesting and can be viewed on the official website.
In the European Team Championships, England are enjoying a good run. After six rounds they have 8 match points and lie in equal fifth position (seventh on tie-break). Gawain Jones has played in all six matches, and is unbeaten, as is Mickey Adams, who has played in five.
Today’s match was against a strong Ukraine team, the result being 2 – 2. Tomorrow England face Georgia, who are seeded 14th and are therefore lower-rated than England.
The women are having a torrid time. They won today, but Dagne Ciuksyte lost again. The games can be viewed here.
