Sheffield & District Chess Association

Established 1883







British OTB Chess Championship, 2021


Andrew Ledger in sole lead after first 5 of 9 rounds


The “proper” British Championship is taking place at the moment in Hull.  The entry is nowhere near as strong as in normal times, for a variety of reasons.  The Championship features three Yorkshire players, one of whom is Sheffield’s Andrew Ledger.  The fortunes of the three Yorkshire players are being covered by the present writer on the Yorkshire Chess Association website, but this mention is being made on the Sheffield site as in round 5, Andrew Ledger (“only” an IM) beat GM Mark Hebden and in so doing has moved into the sole lead.
