2010 Bermuda Open

Once again I failed to make it to this event! One of these years I will actually get there, but only when I am far richer than I am now.
This years event finished in a tie for first between GM Alexander Ivanov and Bermuda Olympiad Captain GM Nick De Firmian. A number of familar faces from various Olympiads did well in the event, with Bermuda player Kennedy Simmons winning a class prize.
While the tournament doesn't seem to have an official website, I did pick up the results, some wonderful pictures, and good coverage of all the activities from Castling Queen Side, a blog run by female American player Polly Wright. Combining chess and blogging didn't seem to effect her play as she won the Under 2000 prize in the tournament.
