According to the latest announcement, the 4th London Chess Classic will be held from December 1st -10th, 2012. The tournament will again be a nine player all play all. The tournament should be at least as strong as the 3rd London Chess Classic and will run along broadly similar lines to the previous edition. There will be play on two weekends and other  weekend and FIDE rated side events. Chess in Schools and Communities will organise free classes and tournaments for schools as well as courses for potential chess teachers. The opening ceremony will take place on November 30th and the fund raising dinner for CSC will be on December 10th. More details to be announced later.
