    Paddington, in between Sydney city and Bondi Beach

    Seeking help on tournament research

    I am not sure if these are still running, but from about 1990 until recently there existed an annual tournament that pitted the best female players against veteran GMs. The match was held over 5 boards, as a Scheviningen Double Round Robin.

    Each year's event was held in a different city (usually European), and was named after a local dance.

    What I am looking for are images from these events - not of the players, but the posters/artwork produced to promote the event. I've found lots of crosstables and tournament reports, but I know there was some fabulous artwork done for at least some of these tournaments. The poster created the year the event was held in Spain (and called the Flamenco tournament) was a very striking Red and Yellow number, with I think Black and White dancing silhouettes.

    The purpose of my seach is to assist in the design of an event I am creating at the moment. Any assistance would be MUCH appreciated.

    It's better to set goals that one cannot acheive than to settle for mediocrity.
