This is a fantastic tournament where there are activities for everyone; I normally choose a cycling trip to Vallibierna that takes 2.5 hours (3.5 the day I took the photos!)

The Gran Hotel Benasque and specially Hotel Aneto make the whole thing very enjoyable; there is very good food too!

So even if your performance is not so good (as it was my case this year) you can enjoy a wonderful vacation!

My friend Javier Esquivias prefers Hotel Ciria to eat...

My Tournament: I believe I was playing well but missed opportunities vs Volodin (2520) and Maria Cerrato were painful; I ended up with three losses in a row and -35 ELO points
