British Chess Championships Solving Tourney
Written by Michael McDowell   

This year’s British Chess Championships in Coventry featured a problem solving event in two sections, each consisting of six problems to be solved in two hours. Problems 1-6 below made up the easier section, while problems 7-12 were for more experienced solvers. Peter Horlock won the former, correctly solving four of the problems, while David Hodge, who recently represented Great Britain at the European Solving Championship in Romania, won the latter with full points.
