Hi everyone,

London Chess Classic director IM Malcolm Pein has said that the Candidates' schedule in London (October 24th - November 12th) might jeopardise the the organisation of the 4th London Classic in December.

IMPein has said, "Although some players have indicated they would still play the 4th LCC, I am not sure if the public and particularly the media would have the appetite for two elite tournaments in London staged so close together." You can read more in The Week in Chess.
