Hey That's Me! - Kostya & Isaac Spotted in Reykjavik
Fellow chess.com contributor IM Kostya Kavutskiy and I got some special attention during Round 6 of the Reykjavik Open! Shout-out to Simon, Fiona, and the chess.com team for a show well done
From what I can recall, this is the first tournament I've played in with both DGT board streaming and a live stream for viewers. Luckily for me, I was only victimized in my one loss against American GM Alejandro Ramirez...
Certainly getting used to seeing all of the chess celebrities is new - Giri, Shirov, Andreikin, and Jobava are the biggest names in the field to name a few! Watching these guys play in person is something else Who is the strongest player you've ever seen/met?
