Much Chess Fun in the Sunshine at Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festival 2013

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

We have a nice chess note from the Gibraltar Chess Festival 2013 press officer Alice Mascernhas.  She writes: "As we moved into week two of the Gibraltar Chess Festival the weather has continued to get better and better and many chess players have taken the opportunity to walk on the beach, pop into town or visit the tourist sites and of course visit the famous Rock Apes on the Upper Rock."
We took a look at the great photos!

It was top of the Rock for Stuart Conquest, tournament director, who accompanied a large group who visited the Rock Apes and like many others before were totally mesmerised by them. The group included Irina Krush, Zhao Xue, Zhou Yang-Fan, Yu Yangyi, Jovana Vojinovic, Valentina Gunina, Peter Doggers and David Alberto.

The group also visited St Michael’s Cave, a network of limestone caves located in the Upper Rock Nature Reserve, one of the most popular attractions on the Rock. A natural phenomenon it has thousands of visitors a year wandering through its huge cavern.

In the hotel there is always some chess happening as can be seen in the picture with Tania Sachdev and Elisabeth Paehtz. 

We wish everyone great chess fun at the Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festival. You can replay with Chess King a nice game between Nana Dzagnidze and Michael Adams just played at the tournament.
