A Weekend in North Holland

The HWP club in the city of Haarlem has celebrated its 75th anniversary in a series of attractive events. The celebrations were concluded last weekend in a strong blitz tournament in which I took part and was lucky to win the senior prize. The final standings may be seen here:

On Sunday I visited the traditional Cultural Village tournament which was played for the first time in a rapid format and took place in café De Zon in Wijk aan Zee. My pupil IM David Klein was the highest rated participant and indeed emerged the unbeaten outright winner.

Results and games may be watched here:

David, a rather busy student in the University of Leiden, has recently been awarded with the GM title provided he will cross the 2500 Elo barrier. He still needs 9 rating points which he hopes to score already in Groningen open later this month. The victory in WAZ seems like a decent warming up.
