Ben in London

My first day in London was awesome. I spoke to Hikaru, Speelman, Hodgson, Trent, Pein, Anand, Gelfand, Judit Polgar to name a few. Kasparov showed up in the VIP room , where Aviv and I hangout, and hung out for about an hour or 2. The place we are staying is an 8 min walk from the tournament hall. We saw a soccer match, and the home team we rooted for won 1-0. Chelsea beat a team from Bucharest. Everything is great so far! I wrote an article for www.uschess.org [Finegold on the London Classic]
