Included are photos of the Grandmasters participating in the Festival Open. The last round game between Jon Ludvig Hammer and Simon Williams ended in a quick draw, which means that Norwegian grandmaster Jon Ludvig Hammer has taken first prize (£2,500) in the Festival Open with 8/9. He will be hoping that his compatriot Magnus Carlsen can make it a double Norwegian celebration tonight.
