8th London Chess Classic

Simon Edwards of Cheddleton is competing in the Open Section of the 8th London Chess Classic at Olympia and currently has a score of 2/5. A quick glance at the entrants will show you that it is packed with GM's and IM's so is an incredibly tough competition. Simon is ranked 179 out of 247 competitors and today faces an opponent from the Czech Republic in Round 6 who is graded 150 FIDE points higher than him, so another difficult day looms.
