U.S. Women’s Champion IM Anna Zatonskih just sent this to us:

“I played a game under water vs. Robin Swinkels (in Curacao). He won the Dutch junior championship a couple times. The event was organized by Lions Dive & Beach Resort and took place in Sea Aquarium on Curacao.

Some GMs played in the swimming pool before. But I think it is a first under water chess game in real water. The idea came from International Arbiter Alex Roose. The spectators could see the game from submarine.”

Thank you Anna for the unique picture!
