1) Introduction

My thanks to Roland Wimmer, Olexandr Prohorov, Luiz Roberto Da Costa Jr, Sergey Vidyakin, Vladimir Mahnev, Hans Groffen, John Hartmann, Hugh Brodie, and everyone else who helped with this issue.

The Olympiad in Tromso finally got under way on Saturday. If the first three rounds are anything to go by we should see some absolutely tremendous chess. The early rounds suggest to me that the Russians are strong favourites but we're seeing a real strength in depth and quality of play so far. The standard of broadcasting in chess and accuracy is rising all the time and right from the start I have been impressed with the work from the team running the electronic boards in Tromso. Very tough job with so many games. I wrote a program to check results and there have been very few mistakes so far and could easily be none for the rest of the event. This allows us to watch and follow any of the teams which is just fantastic. I can't wait for the rest of the Olympiad.

Many thanks to those who have donated so far to TWIC following my appeal after my 1000th issue. I will write to those who have contributed recently. I'm very grateful and it has made a big difference to me. If you also wish to donate to help me keep TWIC going and move it forward then you can do so via PayPal at:

Hope you enjoy this issue.

3) 101st British Chess Championships 2014

The 101st British Chess Championships took place in Aberystwyth 19th to 30th July 2014. Jonathan Hawkins and David Howell shared the title scoring 8.5/11. There was no tie-break scheduled this year. I imagine the proximity to the Olympiad factored into the decision, probably to reduce the length of the event by a day.

9) Primorsky Debut 2014

The Primorsky Debut took place 21st to 29th July 2014. Ernesto Inarkiev edged out Dmitry Bocharov on tie-break after both scored 7/9. My thanks to the organisers Sergey Vidyakin, Vladimir Mahnev for taking time to clear up a problem with the final rounds games. Hopefully they will become available. At the moment they are all duplicates of round 8.
