The auction house Klittich-Pfankuch had an additional surprise in store:
A limited edition of fine red and white wine respectively
with Lasker labels for the present KWA members.
Many thanks go to Brunswick for this renewed generous action!
(Click again on the picture for a close-up of the label.)

The book-signing has been rung in.

The online game against Elisabeth Pähtz ended with a
"mercy draw" for the Lasker people.

Tony Gillam obviously derives pleasure from checking the monograph.


Concluding with a comfortable dinner: Gunnar Finnlaugsson
and Peter de Jong (left), Calle Erlandsson and Tony Gillam (right).
