Nightly departure

March 18, 2011

Reykjavik has become a major hub as a connection between Europe and North America. Unfortunately, this means that Icelandair’s schedule is somewhat crazy. In order to get home, loads of chess players were up at 4 am to catch a bus to the airport. A picture of Luke McShane trying to juggle four pieces of luggage while walking (if you can call it that) would have been somewhat hilarious, but unfortunately I was too slow on the trigger. Instead, all I got for waking up at 4 am was this picture of a snowy, windy and cold Reykjavik morning – Well, that plus the fact that I actually made my flight!

    I have a beef with Mr. Hammer. I speak on behalf of his entire posse of fans worldwide and galaxy-wide when I say that we want to see a fully annotated version of his brilliant win over GM Sutovsky from the European Individual Championship! Don’t leave the Martians bored this fine evening, they would be entertained for hours if they had a chance to play through this brilliance and reach a new definition of art as we know it.
