Krush in Gibraltar: Caves and Commentary Print E-mail
January 29, 2014
GM Irina Krush is currently in the Gibraltar Chess Congress, doing commentary for the official site with GM Simon Williams. American GMs Gata Kamsky and Aleksandr Lenderman are playing. Irina and Simon voted Gata's game as the best in round one. Irina said, "The move 23...Nf2 in that game is very pretty!"

 "The Queen and Knight Tango"

Irina, who just won Best of CLO honors for her piece on the Baku Open, will provide further coverage of the Gibraltar Congress for CLO. For now, enjoy some photos she snapped on day one. "There's a trick to getting people to smile for the camera...you have to smile at them!"
