Below are some photos that were taken during the event… I might add more later.

Beautiful view all around it

The stage on which the knock out matches were played. I forgot to mention that the event was played in the Bastia Theatre. A great location. There was always a great atmosphere in the playing hall. Corsica is chess crazy. I have never heard such applause for the players before. It was great to see!

I will probably not be posting until I come back home later this month. I hope I gave you enough to keep you busy until then!
