|British Championships (2016)|
Michael Adams won the British Chess Championships 2016 in Bournemouth to add to his 4 previous British titles. His score of 10/11 equals the record set by Julian Michael Hodgson in 1992 and, given that future championships are planned to be run over 9 rounds, this was probably the last opportunity for the record to be equalled or exceeded.(1)
Jovanka Houska won the British Women's title with a score of 7/11. She defeated Lentzos in the final round but already had the Championships in the bag with a round in hand.(1)

|Aug-06-16|| ||jith1207: Looks like by the time this tournament has been added, alas, everybody is commenting on Sinquefield cup.|
Wonderful cameo by Adams, is he still assisting Carlsen for matches?
|Aug-06-16|| ||kingfu: Whither Nigel?|
|Aug-06-16|| ||PhilFeeley: Justin Tan should get a GM norm.|
|Aug-08-16|| ||Sokrates: <jith1207: ... Wonderful cameo by Adams ...>|
Very true. Although Adams's star is fading on the international stage (# 22 for the moment), he has once more demonstrated his supremacy on the British Isles. No losses and a clear win says it all, well done!
|Aug-09-16|| ||Mr. V: <Sokrates> I wouldn't say fading, he's been pretty consistent for a couple of years now. Of course, it's inevitable he'll be on a downward trajectory, but evidently he has slowed that trend down quite a bit.|
|Aug-10-16|| ||Chessinfinite: A very Karpov like performance by Mickey.. 10/11 is Fischeresque, nice.. All the best to Adams.|
|Aug-10-16|| ||starry2013: Adams highest rating was September 2013, and for the last 3 years he's been been in the top 20 most of the time, a couple of times he got to 12.|
|Aug-13-16|| ||Sokrates: <Mr. V>, <starry2013> - I don't disagree with you. Adams is, as demonstrated here, still a very very strong player. What I meant was: but not in the top 10 elite, not among those who could strive for the throne.|
|Aug-13-16|| ||HeMateMe: <Whither Nigel?>
Still suffering a Brexit hangover?
|Aug-13-16|| ||morfishine: Terrific tournament by Adams! I really thought Howell would win this|
|Sep-01-16|| ||starry2013: Sokrates <not among those who could strive for the throne>|
In reality most aren't really striving for the throne. I think his main aim is to just try and do his personal best, that's always a target to improve on.
