Ellie gamal (her picture is shown on the original advertisement) resides in Essex but is from Egypt played and won the best African player prize, scoring 11.5/17 and a $300 prize to boot, an outstanding achievement, congratulations to her

I don’t seen any other participants from the UK that entered though which is very surprising.

Well done Alaa. That's the spelling I know, David, but well done for spotting a great result.

She calls herself Ellie, but what does she know?
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.

Was there a mix up in identities and/or player pictures?

Egyptian player Alaa Elgamal FIDE profile seems be the one in the competition; https://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?event=10608672

English player Alaa Gamal has a different FIDE profile; https://ratings.fide.com/profile/469114
