2011 Wijk aan Zee (Tata Steel Chess) - Photos by Fred Lucas

Ohmygoddess!  What were the organizers thinking - squeezing that many people into so small a room - and with "sea and chess" murals on the walls, no less!  Entirely claustrophobic.  I would not be able to stay in that room for a minute, let alone the hours it takes to play a chess game.  Holy Cow!  Not even enough room for a good stretch!

Here are the ladies:

GM Kateryna Lahno, playing in C Group, R1.

Sachdev v. Lahno, C Group, R2.

Tania Sachdev of India, playing in C Group, R1.

hello! I'm the art director of Chess Life magazine - I'm interested in possibly using your photo above (of the tournament hall) by Fred Lucas in our April issue. Please drop me a line if this is a possibility.
