Tough Start For Alex Richardson At Torquay

Alex could hardly have been given a tougher start at Torquay than the one he has been landed with !!  He has been drawn to play as White against Grandmaster David Howell, a player who outgrades him by 490 points in the FIDE rankings and is also the 2nd highest graded player in the tournament. Malcolm Armstrong also has a difficult match, being drawn to play as White against Donald Mason, an opponent graded 190 points higher than him. Matches start at 2:30 and you should be able to view Alex's match online by clicking here.
