3-tournament Israeli series in Eilat in January-February of 2013

I think Israeli organizers are beginning to smarten up!

2 tournaments have been scheduled in Eilat for the end of January to precede the fed cup competition to be held on 6-9 of Februray (taking place in Eilat as well)
a 10k starting on the 21st of January
and a 75k(!) starting on the 28th of January

Let's hope the 75K - a great idea and a very welcome debut - will bring us more to talk about as far as the local players are concerned.

Sure this 10K was probably the strongest ever held in Israel, with the top two seeds as last minute qualifying entries, but that does not justify winning a grand total of zero MD matches against guest players and this R2 showing totalling 5 games in 4 matches

Another 3-tournament series, all 10ks in Netanya this time from the 25th of February onwards.
Good job for the organizers

The cynical way to look at it is to say "who are these for?" as the locals can't get past the 2nd round (usually not even that), but one can hope it will bear fruits in the long run.

It certainly is: already 10 tournaments this year, way more than ever before, and we're only mid-June.
It sure helped Khazaniuk and Tour to boost up their rankings
It remains to be seen if it will have a real effect over time.

After that boost in the first half of the year there's been a major decline (not to say halt) in activity afterwards and this week's Hertzliya 25K seems to be the only tournament to be held here since early June, with nothing planned for the rest of the year either (save the national championships in December as usual).
