54th European go Congress Day 2
Everything is going smoothly. Perhaps not surpisingly because of the heat (daily maximum about 30 C), however, tomorrow's sauna evening at Varala by Lake Pyhäjärvi had proved to be rather unpopular. Only five out of twenty five of the tickets sold by today afternoon. With more agressive marketing we can perhaps sell the tickets to some more people. I had the organiser of the sauna evenings make a couple of dozen photocopies of the brochure and then delivered them to the tables at the rapid tournament. Hopefully, some more tickets can be sold tomorrow.
It's too early to say much about the main tournament after only two rounds, of which the results are now on the web. Dinerstein lost to Burzo which may make it difficult for him to beat all of the other Europeans and to win European Championship.
