The grand woman of Australian chess is today the special guest at the Sydney International Open. Still looking quite healthy, Mrs Koshnitsky was very interested in the top games and paid special attention to those involving Aussie female players.
Live broadcast of games is still unavailable but the guys are doing everything they can to correct this. It seems that some special hardward was missing from the whole set up. They've also purchased a special router for wireless connectivity to make net connection within the venue a little better. Cross fingers that all will be fine soon. Lectures by IM Leonid Sandler has also commenced. For those interested and who wish to drop by, this is upstairs in a large room with big projector screen. The set up there is quite impressive and it's definitely worth a look.
I have now added more pictures from day 2. Note that these new images are from round 3 as I was working from home this morning. Apologies for that.
