The Steinitz Festival is only a few days away! In an exciting development IM Mohammed Henry Steel will be headlining the field. He and his wife Khadidja have registered to play. I am glad he is playing again because he has an exceptional grasp of chess. In 2012 he beat grandmaster Luke McShane when South Africa played England at the Olympiad. In 2014 I was a witness to his fine win against GM Gata Kamsky (USA) at the Norway Olympiad.
