2016 Gibraltar Challengers A - Game 2

On the day of Round 1 (Monday, January 25), I had met an older gentleman (born 1940), Sead Kozarcanin of Croatia.  He asked me if I could message his daughter to indicate that he had arrived safely for the tournament, and of course I did.  He was one of the folks staying in La Linea.

As fate would have it, we met in Round 2.  Still sporting a credible rating of 2073 at 75 years of age, he had been 2243 as recently as ten years ago.

A view of the main tournament hall. The view is from the section of the room with boards from approx 40 to 75.
I (only my nose and hair are visible) am by the window, just to the right (in the picture) of the player in the blue shirt.
