Gawain Jones – European Blitz Champion

Congratulations from everyone at Quality Chess to GM Gawain Jones, the new European Blitz Champion! The event was held on-line for obvious reasons, with Gawain topping a stellar field, including beating GM David Navara in the semi-final and GM Alexei Shirov in the final.

Gawain is of course the author of two superb books on the Dragon. And Gawain will be back as a Quality Chess author in 2021 when we publish his 1.e4 repertoire books – his recommended variations are dangerous but not the biggest-theory main lines, so we are calling it the 1.e4 Coffeehouse Repertoire. No publication date is fixed, but somewhere in the first half of the year.

This seems as good a place as any to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  1. Actually, Quality Chess generously contributed 3 great books to our sale. And they did it in plenty of time, last week. However, due to an internal miscommunication (our fault, not QC), the books didn’t get added to the list until a few hours later.

    The good news is that there is still plenty of time, the sale runs through the end of the year 🙂

  2. A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!!

    Here is to hoping Gawain’s Grand Prix makes a return in his Coffeehouse Repertoire. 🙂
