British Chess Championship 2018

Michael Adams - new British Champion

With a score of 7/9 there was a play-off between Michael Adams and Luke J. McShane for the British Chess Championship.

After a play-off - two games 20+10, Michael Adams (2706) playing Luke J. McShane (2699) won the first game playing white. The second game, where Luke J. McShane was playing white looked equal for quite a while, and it seemed that Adams played some drawing moves - which was all he needed to win the title, until the end where McShane managed to win after trapping Adam's rook, and eventually winning the game. What a game!

This meant another playoff - two games 5 + 3.

Adams wins the first game with white. And in the second game, Adams wins the Championship after a two knights (for Adams) versus a rook end game.
