Meanwhile, in Zurich…

Whilst the massive Gibraltar Masters, with over 100 GMs and IMs playing, reaches its third round, the Zurich Chess Challenge starts today.

This is the first-ever Category 23 tournament, with an average rating of over 2800.   The six participants, which include the top three players in the world (Carlsen, Aronian and Nakamura), are all rated in the world’s top ten.

The Chess World is spoilt for choice, with these two major events taking place at the same time.   I hope to be able to display some of the more interesting positions and games from these events on this website in the next few days.
