I apologize for not posting anything significant about the tournament in Cappelle these last days, but LIFE sometimes gets in the way of our plans! Besides not having a particularly good tournament myself, I have also come down with the flu and this has also eaten into my energy. IN ANY CASE, here are some photos that I have taken, and I promise to have many more before the end of the tournament on Saturday…
Two of the VERY BEST arbiters in the world, Carlos Dias (Portugal) on the right and Miguel Ramos Vizuete (Spain). The Cappelle tournament chooses very wisely its support team!
Montrealers might remember Renier Castellanos. Here he is with the lovely Silvia-Raluca Sgircea from Romania
My first round opponent, Theodor Kenneskog, from Sweden, and his upper-right is a fellow Swede, Martin Lokander.
Two Dominican internationals, Geovanny Cesar (l) and Ramon Mateo, at a local pub near our hotel last night.
Dinner last night with friends. Dominic and Jean-Luc Seret (left) and Kaido Kulaots (Estonia grandmaster and coach). As well as yours truly giving the thumbs up…
