2010

Second edition: February 2010

One year later the tournament had grown further, and the field of participants was stronger. Highest rated player this year was semi-retired IM Li Riemersma (2431), who was one of four participants living in the Dutch capital. Other notable chess figures are Israelian IM Yochanan Afek and Rumanian WGM Alina Motoc, the girlfriend (now wife) of Dutch GM Erwin L’Ami. Dutch youngsters like FM Christov Klein and WIM Lisa Schut played as well, and two Indians: Gurpreet Pal Singh and 13-year old Khosla Shiven. FM Christov Klein won the tournament with 6.5/9 and thereby passed the 2400 rating border to become an IM. (More at ChessVibes.)
