Candidates' Stage of British Championship Complete

5 May 2018 - 7 May 2018

The Candidates' Tournament took place at the London Go Centre, with 18 players taking part in the usual six round Swiss-style tournament over the three days of the bank holiday weekend. Sam Aitken and Boris Mitrovic headed the field with five wins each. They are promoted through to Challengers' League, along with Andrew Simons, Charles Hibbert, Alex Rix, Alistair Wall and Tim Hunt, who won four, and Sam Bithell, who topped the list on three.

Note that eight players are promoted through to Challengers' League this year since Daniel Hu, who was in Japan at the time for the World Amateur, has elected not to defend his title and take up his place in the League.
