Right-to-left: Peter Gohvat, Pavel Aronin and me.Pavel Aronin. A friend of Jerusalem team, Vladimir Grabinsky and mine too.The cliffs on the east edge of Masada are about 1,300 feet (400 m) high and the cliffs on the west are about 300 feet (90 m) high; the natural approaches to the cliff top are very difficult. The top of the plateau is flat and rhomboid-shaped, about 1,800 feet (550 m) by 900 feet (275 m). There was a casemate wall around the top of the plateau totaling 4,300 feet (1.3 km) long and 12 feet (3.7 m) thick, with many towers, and the fortress included storehouses, barracks, an armory, the palace, and cisterns that were refilled by rainwater. Three narrow, winding paths led from below up to fortified gates.I am on the top of the famous ancient fortress Masada. By the way, the height of this mountain is 50 meters. But it is 450 meters higher than the Dead Sea. How about that?This Dead Sea is so dirty!It is absolutely true that man can lie on the surface of Dead Sea and even read a newspaper. The problem is that Pavel and me forgot to take some fresh press with us!Grandmaster Boris Alterman is looking for an advantage in the King's Indian endgame. Interesting fact: he is one of the advisers of the famous program Deep Junior.What a bummer! I have been preparing for 1.e4...One of the most strong teams in Israel: Sutovsky, Avrukh, DrozdovskijPopular omen: if you have Vitali Golod playing on the fifth board, than you have not the worst team!Former resident of Kiev Dimitri Komarov is playing against former resident of Baku Emil SutovskyJerusalem team is going to make a draw again!I really wanted to play against legendary Lev Psakhis, but they put him to cover the second board.The team from Ashdod (Avrukh, Drozdovkij, Mikhalevski) is in the middle of a struggle while our team hasn't made a single move!My opponent is looking for the equality which probably can't be found... But it didn't get in our way of making a draw.My first steps in 1.d2-d4...How many grandmasters do you see on this photo?The team from Beer-Sheva has Vitiugov on the third board. Isn't that something?Michael Roiz won't get two bishops in this game...Gennady Tunik vs Dov ZifroniPsakhis and Zifroni changed places and made a surprise for our team
