The ‘after party’ of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament on February 18th was a great happening. Jeroen van den Berg gave an engaging speech about his work as tournament director, peppered with some great anecdotes. While chess enthusiasts are still basking in the glow of the tournament, Jeroen has already begun preparations for the next one!
Following Jeroen’s presentation, the chess portion began, in which Erwin l’Ami showcased the highlights of the Tata tournament, including the games Giri-Gukesh and Giri-Carlsen. Attendance on this Saturday afternoon was excellent, prompting management to decide to organize more such events on Saturdays in the future.
