The British Chess Championships 2016 took place in Bournemouth between 23rd July and 6th August. Michael Adams scored 10/11 to become British Champion and Jovanska Houska won the women’s event.  Adams equalled the record score set by Julian Hodgson in 1992, but is unlikely to have the opportunity to better it next year because it is planned to reduce the length of the event to only 9 rounds in future.                

The ECF has a page dedicated to the competition which can be found here:
http://www.britishchesschampionships.co.uk/  The site includes videos of the game of the day for each round, presented by IM Andrew Martin. The link Andrew Martin - videos takes you to the ECF’s YouTube channel, where videos of games from this and the previous two championships can be viewed, together with live commentary from 2015. Possibly live commentary from this year will be added in due course. Pairings and Results takes you to lists of participants for the various competitions with cross-tables.

PGNs2016 enables you to play through all the games of the 26 different competitions, round by round, including the “Weekender” tournaments. There are several pages of photographs of the participants.

If you wish to it is possible to download the games in pgn format.
