The 7th Howard Staunton Memorial took place 7th (opening ceremony) - 17th August 2009. This year saw a UK vs The Netherlands double round Scheveningen match and an interesting Category IX all-play-all. The UK had a small Elo rating advantage in the Scheveningen match but the teams were well matched almost all the way through, until the UK found a decisive advantage with a 4-1 win in round 9. The tournament took place in its usual venue - Simpson's In The Strand. Nigel Short's 8/10 will take him back over 2700 and allow him to take back the England number one spot from Michael Adams for the first time in many years.

Dulce et decorum est... (10)

England draw final round to take the match.
