Odds and ends…
This week finds me at the very strong Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festival. One of the few remaining big open tournaments in Europe that consistently finds the necessary sponsorship to keep going. I am not sure what its secret is, but I congratulate its organizers for their achievement!
Eric Hansen keeps winning!
Meanwhile Tata is coming to a close this week (29th). In the Challenger section Canadian Grandmaster Eric Hansen is having a fine run, yesterday winning his third game, putting him just one point out of first place with 4 games to go. Good luck, Eric!
