GM Sergei Tiviakov, world traveler impresario, is currently in Angola taking part in the CUCA International tournament in the capitol of Luanda. He has taken very nice pictures and a brief article has appeared on ChessBase. GM Nigel Short heads the field of 26 players in the open section.
There are a couple of other GMs including Portuguese due of Luis Galego and Antonio Fernandes. IM Robert Gwaze of Zimbabwe is also in the field and will be looking for a GM norm. Unfortunately, he has lost in the first round to Angola’s IM Amorin Agnelo.
