Virtually Live Pics

Well, sort of! Here are some more photos from Larry. Our man couldn't contain himself. Says he: "And here are our warriors ready to fight to the last drop of blood! Shame on the cowardly Armenians!"

Right on man.

Rogers, on board 1, is facing Julio Granda (described by Helen Milligan Jacob Aagaard as "probably the strongest player in chess history not to have an opening repertoire") of Peru. At this time, 2 hours after start of play, all Aussie positions are in good health.

At the second hour mark, board 1 and 3 are doing well. Arianne Caoili on board 2 is under siege with her opponent sacrificing a piece early. Her country hopes that Arianne can hold.

Actually, the quote about the opening repertoire is by Jacob Aagaard, not by Helen Milligan. He is given as the author of that section of the report on the Chess Scotland website.
