Here is the link to the photos from the first press conference of the day. My guests include GM Mikhail Gurevich (once ranked #5 in the world), GM Tomi Nyback (just defeated Magnus Carlsen just shortly before the press conference), GM Wesley So (top ranked player in the Philippines and participant of the 2009 SPICE Cup), Pamela Mangroelai (Miss Surinam and she will represent her country in the world beauty pageant – she plays board 4 for the Surinam Women’s Olympiad team), and Terosa Ooft (she is 14 and plays board 2 for the Surinam Women’s Olympiad team).
