The British Chess Championship was an 11-round Swiss event that took place from July 25 to August 5 and featured, among others, twelve GMs, including such renowned stars as Michael Adams (2715) and Nigel Short (2687) & promising juniors like Howell (2625) and Jones (2606). Nigel and Michael shared first at 8.5/11, and then GM Adams clinched the title by winning the play-off match 1.5-0.5.
IM Houska (2418) finished 14th with 7 points and was declared the British Women's Chess Champion.
The prizes at the event were, to put it mildly, modest: £8,000 for the winner, £4,000 for the runner-up, etc., and just £500 for the best-placed woman.
