British Championship 2017
Champion: Daniel Hu
The 2017 British Championship started in April 2016. All those who played in tournaments between April 2016 and March 2017 and ended with an EGF rating of 1900 or higher are on the list of qualifiers. Note: This list contains players who may not be members or do not have the required British nationality or residency requirements. The qualifiers were able to play in the Candidates' Tournament from 29th April to 1st May 2017 and the best players from this could join the reigning champion in the Challengers' League from 27th May to 30th May 2017. Both events were held in West London.
However Junnan Jiang declined to defend his title and so the top 8 players progressed to the Challengers' League - the top two to play for the title, namely Daniel Hu and Andrew Simons.
