Two super events, Reggio Emilia and Donostia San Sebastian, are currently going on in Italy and Spain. With multiple players above 2700 including Ivanchuk, Morozevich, Gashimov, Mamedyarov, Naiditsch, Ponomariov, Dominguez, Giri, Nakamura, Kasimdzhanov, Vitiugov, Caruana, Bacrot, Laznicka, Van Wely, etc. this is a great way to close 2011 and a nice start for the new 2012 year.
Thanks to David Llada and Martha Fierro we have two fantastic photo albums from the events, that will be updated after every round.
