An email from Scott Parker corrects something I wrote yesterday.
The five GM’s playing this year ties the record for this event set in 2002. In that year we had GM’s Yury Shulman, Ildar Ibragimov, Aleks Wojtkiewicz, Pavel Blatny and Art Bisguier. The funny thing is that only Bisguier was on staff at the camp. The other four each showed up for the tournament not knowing that each other was coming. Another funny thing was that Pavel Blatny (who is a really nice guy) voluntarily turned in copies of all five of his game scoresheets. Not a single move could be deciphered off of any of them!
