1997 Canadian Open video

Cecil Rosner writes:
I finally found some time to edit a little "mini-documentary" of the Canadian Open in Winnipeg 1997. It remains the biggest tournament Winnipeg has ever organized, with 11 grandmasters and nearly 200 players. It contains footage of the event and tournament hall, interviews with players/organizers, etc. Some clips from Yanofsky, Hodgson, Spraggett, Psakhis, Shabalov, Smirin, Murey, etc. Ole Hellsten, Albert Boxer and others make an appearance, as do Hugh Brodie, Phil Haley, etc.. Just some moments that might be of interest to those who played and others. There is lots more raw footage. Pass along the link to anyone you might think is interested....
