2013 Candidates' Opening Ceremony

Phew! It's been a spell since I final blogged hither (last June - that's unopen to nine months). But I decided it was fourth dimension to dust off my quondam weblog site for the biggest chess tournament to hitting London... ever? The 2013 World Championship Candidates' Tournament is something rattling special: viii tiptop players competing for the correct to run into Vishy Anand inward a championship gibe subsequently this yr (or maybe early on side past times side yr - yous ever accept to possess inward some delay contingent when foreseeing such an event.

Your tabular array is (nearly) ready, gentlemen...
I discovery in that place is a feel of unreality preceding a major chess number and, when big-time chess hits London, I ever discovery myself unable to believe that I am actually going to live seeing world-class players, practically on my doorstep. So, when I visited the venue today, for the opening ceremony, I had to accept a quick await circular the actual playing area. It's non quite ready yet, simply it looks every bit if it exclusively needs a duo of hours' move to live shipshape. But the sight of that table, amongst the get upward cards 'Aronian' together with 'Carlsen' already attached to the side helped convey domicile to me that this affair is actually going to live happening. Exciting, isn't it?
