He was replaced by the 67-year-old Grünfeld who played his last international tournament.1, 2 The participation of Uhlmann was in danger because of quandary with the travel documents, but he did arrive as promised and in time before the start of round 2 (the round 1 game was played on the rest day 16 January). The drawing of lots took place on 11 January in the Kennemertheater where play was scheduled to start at 4 pm.3, 4 IM norm 3,5 points (achieved by van den Berg), GM norm 5 points.
