Jonathan Hawkins & David Howell – 2014 British Champions

Congratulations to IM Jonathan Hawkins & GM David Howell on winning the 2014 British Championship for the first time, with a score of 8½/11.

With 6 players all in contention going into the final round, his half point lead made all the difference. A draw with IM Richard Pert (who remained undefeated by a GM through the tournament) sealed the deal for Hawkins, with Howell catching a fine win over GM Mark Hebden in the final round.
