Kirsan Ilyumzhinov again visits Tromso.

The president (as well as the journalists) is in an advantageous position, he walks through the tables, poses for the photographers and leaves the hall, while the players and arbiters get tortured in the room without conditioning.

As they say it only results are remembered by the history. We will only remember how team A beat team B and GM X defeated grandmaster Y, but hardly will anyone remember how GM Y's brains just stopped working in a winning position after five hours of play in a stuffy room.

So, check out standings and ratings and keep in mind that ten minutes after the round starts you can hardly breathe in this hall.

Garry continues signing his books.

And continues being interviewed.

This is the gift he got from the Tromso chess club.

In this part you will find my visit to Zurab Azmaiparashvili, the ECU presidential candidate, who organized a reception in the three storied house he rents in Tromso. 

A modest house, isn't it?

And here's the view. 

Georgian music plays inside.

Georgian journalist Zviad Shatirishvili tunes the guitar.

Marina Milorava, Azmaiparashvili's wife welcomes in the house.

Zurab himself also was a bit late.

Azmaiparashvili gave a short speech mostly presenting members of his team.

They listened and clapped.

Viorel Bologan drank red wine...

with cheese from Georgian region imereti...

Between two Georgians.

Andrei Filatov also rents a house in Tromso, but your correspondent hasn't been invited there yet.

Giorgadze has a nice company...

Get ready to see who's coming...
