Corus has barely finished and ChessVibes is already present at the next big tournament for video reports.

There are quicker ways to go to the UK, but early morning I got onto a plane, destination Malaga, and by bus and car went straight out of Spain and right into Gibraltar. Here I will do (video) reports of the Gibtelecom Chess Festival, about which two articles were already published during Corus.

Just a few hours in the Caleta Hotel, I've already met many big British names, such as Stewart Reuben (for ages the godfather of British chess - he organised many Hastings and Lloyds Bank tournaments), John Saunders (editor-in-chief of the British Chess Magazine, blogger and over here content manager of the website) and Stuart Conquest (GM, living in the south of Spain and speaking Spanish fluently, but over here doing his web commentary in the language of the country we're in).

For more general information on the festival I refer to the previous articles (see below); for now I'll leave the press room again to shoot some more footage. So stay tuned for more videos this week!

Update 19:58h
