Jones, the English Grandmaster and winner of a number of individual and team events (including the London Chess Classic 2010) who is currently rated at 2644. Jones is currently the highest rated player in the 88th Hastings Chess Congress: we must wait and see if he takes the first prize this year, though. Another great player coming to Hastings this time is Andrey Sumets of the Ukraine. Sumets tends to play the Queen’s Pawn Game (which runs A40 A41 E00) or to open with the Slav formation, marking him out as somewhat different from the majority of chess players.
PGN representations of the games will be available on the official website of the 88th Hastings Chess Congress. The organisers aim to update the PGN games and summaries of each day’s play on a very regular basis, so make sure that you tune in to hear the latest on the 88th Hastings Chess Congress!
