The drawing hides a hidden message: "Topalov's play still stranded at
Wijk aan Zee", says Pia on her twitter account.

|Short talks before the round|
|Yesterday, Daniel Stellwagen and Jan Smeets|
commented the games for the public.
|Before the start of the round, the beauty prizes are|
awarded - that's why you see the players applauding.
|Sergey Tiviakov vs Dimitri Reinderman|
You can see in the tribune Sergey's mother.
|Usually I see Coke, coffee or something along those lines,|
on the players boards. But Sergey prefers Tomato juice.
|People who are not afraid to express their individuality...|
|Pavel Matocha, organizer of several important events|
Remember the Train Chess? He is the one behind this unique idea.
|Ivanchuk solving the daily challenger, as usual!|
