I am proud I have a chance to attend and participate in this outstanding Festival.

So many ideas, so short time ! I was hoping to play few games with Shane, participate in Irish Open, play blitz game, but my schedule is very tied. Well ... I hope it is not my last visit to Ireland.

From what I heard - Mustafa Durdyev and Ron King will play in Irish Open ... and maybe someone else :lol:

Thanks to InishOwen Club authorities and members, who organised and financially supported my exhibition tour.
