Inside view by WCM Liza Orlova from Salento Open 2016 – 2

Half of the tournament is now over! We’ve won games and lost games but the beautiful atmosphere of the tournament allows us to relax in whichever mood!

The 7th round is about to start with only three more days left of the tournament. It’s so sad how quickly such great events go by.

In the past days we’ve had the soccer and tennis matches. Photos will be uploaded shortly. The blitz tournament which was very strong with the winners being:

1st: Pijpers
2nd: Babikov
Best Under 2000 rating: Sjoberg

And to those who didn’t do as well there will be another blitz tournament tomorrow to take revenge on your previous opponents.

There might be a poker tournament! Especially since many chess players are either poker players as well or just enjoy the card game.

Below are some quotes from chess players in the 5th Salento Open on how they are liking the tournament so far:

I am loving my stay. I’m not playing very well in the tournament because I’m one of the weakest in the section but the atmosphere really takes away my sorrows of the game. It’s a beautiful place to relax, eat great food and tan on the beach. Why not come if you can play chess and be on vacation at the sametime? – Yelizaveta Orlova

Здесь я играю 5 год, все хорошо. Самый лучший турнир в это время года. – Игорь
