The 2010 Caribbean Chess Carnival was a great success with a record number 147 participants. Edison Raphael and the Trinidad Chess Foundation put on a wonderful showing at the historic Queen’s Park Cricket Club. The tournament attracted players and officials from ten countries and the event was covered here at The Chess Drum. I promised to write a special article for ChessBase on the event and it was run on yesterday. It includes the video of the closing ceremonies. Enjoy!
