Last night in Aix les bains

I’m just about to have a nap before our 6am bus to Geneva. I’m sorry for not writing up but I’ve been caught up with different things (namely 1 minute on ICC – I’ve reached over 2000 without a mouse) but I will write up a full report once back. Just on a quick note, Gawain finished 61st on 7/11 after beating GM Navara rated 2722 in the last round. Congratulations to GM Luke McShane who we think is qualifying for the World Cup though we will need to wait for official confirmation from FIDE/ECU.

It’s been a lovely tournament and I hope that there are many more like this! Here are the final standings.
