Grandmasters Sign Up for Queenstown
Just received an update from the 2009 Queenstown Chess Classic organisers. Thirteen grandmasters have now confirmed their entries along with international masters Stanislaw Zawadzki, of Poland, and Australia's Alex Wohl. There are also a couple of women grandmasters including the elegant Slovenian Jana Krivec (pictured left) who was in this part of the world last April for the JAPFA WGM tournament in Indonesia where she finished in fourth place.
Now in their press release, the kiwis took the trouble of sending us a photo of German GM Klaus Bischoff. I think, however, that our readers will prefer our selection, which I found courtesy of www.chesspics.com.
