It is an all-play-all double rounder (1st round on Saturday just gone, 2nd pencilled-in for 16th August) at 5 minute blitz, with this cosmopolitan entry: Olimpiu Urcan (award-winning chess historian on 13 hour stopovers at Heathrow between Singapore and the States), together with the following divers associates of the Streatham and Brixton Chess Blog: Martin Smith (S&B Blogger), Angus French (S&B Blog stringer and snapper), and Richard James - renowned chess author and teacher, and sometime S&B guest blogger.
Great craic, as Richard took us round Bushy Park adjacent to the Palace and tried to explain the interesting bits...
