London Chess Classic 2011 begins - press conference video

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello everyone,

The strongest-ever tournament in British chess has begun with a fabulous line-up. You can follow live via the official website.

This year’s tournament is held under the auspices of the Chess in Schools and Communities, a charity set up to promote the teaching of schools in UK schools. As such, the tournament is not just about the elite grandmasters, it caters for players of all ages and abilities, with a general congress for competition players, numerous fun events for those trying chess for the first time, plus organised tuition for the children.

Can you name all the grandmasters?

The opening press conference of the 3rd London Chess Classic took place at the Olympia Conference Centre, Kensington, London on Friday 2 December 2011.

Here is the video of the press conference. This is surely the strongest-ever chess tournament in England. Access the official website for a live coverage beginning Saturday.
