The leaders of the world rating list compete in London

London Chess Classic has started today. Nine GMs, four of them are top-listed in the world rating, will compete in “football” alike scoring system: win – 3 points, draw – 1, loss – 0.

Here’s the Magnificent Nine: Magnus Carlsen (Norway, 2826), Viswanathan Anand (India, 2811), Levon Aronian (Armenia, 2802), Vladimir Kramnik (Russia, 2800), Hikaru Nakamura (USA, 2758), Michael Adams (England, 2698), Nigel Short (England, 2698), Luke McShane (England, 2698), David Howell (England, 2633).

You probably remember that recently Carlsen, Aronian, Anand and Kramnik competed in another tournament, Tal Memorial, which means they didn’t have much time to rest from each other.

Yesterday GMs played an entertaining game against Internet users, it’s not hard to guess who won.

Results can be followed live on the main page of our website. Today we’re going to discuss the first round events on the air of our radio (works from 18:00 MSK Time). Besides the major tournament the festival includes an open competition and round-robin tournament among women.

A distinguished guest of the festival is Viktor Korchnoi.
