Last minute replacements!

Unfortunately as happens in life and in chess tournaments some people dropped out last minute.

IM Bjorn Thorfinsson had to withdraw due to personal reasons and is replaced by FM Gudmundur Gislason (2319) who was reserve due to his good placement in last years Championship.

Last minute we also had the withdrawal of GM Stefan Kristjansson for personal reasons and fortunately FM Einar Hjalti Jensson (2350) was more than ready to step in!

The 1st round game between Jensson and GM Helgi Gretarsson will for these reasons start later than the other games at 19:30 local time.
