1) Introduction

My thanks to Olexandr Prohorov, Luiz Roberto Da Costa Jr, Holger Lieske, Steve Barrett, Sylvain Ravot, Mitko Iliev, Oscar de la Riva Aguado, Hugh Brodie, Pedro Alberdi, Richard Palliser, Etienne Van Leeuwen, Bryan Quick, Bohuslav Siekierka, Mike Kummer and everyone else who helped with this issue.

When the summer festival season reaches its height there isn't much time for me to appreciate the chess that is going on. From a British point of view David Howell's ascent to the 2700 club could be very important for the future of the game here. In China there were another four rounds of the Chinese Team Championships, Ding Liren scored 4/4 and moves into the top 10, again this could be very important. I only have a partial game score of his win against Wei Yi in the last round, hopefully next week. The Biel Chess tournament has seen some very exciting fighting chess including a memorable king march by David Navara. With over 5000 games this week there is plenty of material to look at.

Hope you enjoy this issue.
