2012 National Open - more pics

I forgot to mention that Steven de Groot won $ 250 in the U2000 section of the National Open !
A win in the last round would have given him clear second, as the winner of the tournament settled for a draw in an overwhelmingly won position immediately after Steve resigned.

Here are some pics from Ken Einarsson from the Karpov simul:

"Anyone who as much as draws with the former World Champion will forever be immortalized in the annals of chess history."
