Tense last round in Amateur 1: nearest camera is Haddou Sellak (Morocco) playing White against Samuel Flanagan (Ireland), with Rupert Dickens (England) playing White against Geir Ole Aagedal (Norway). The first prize is £1,000 with generous rating prizes, so there is a lot to play for.

... Aryan Tari, aged 8, from Norway. I think that makes him our youngest competitor.
We received this nice set of photos of some of our Gibraltarian competitors from Mark Canepa. Thanks, Mark...
