4th London Chess Classic Invitations Sent to Top Players

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,
The 4th London Chess Classic is scheduled to be played at the traditional venue of Olympia in Kensington, London from December 1-10, 2012.

Invitations have been sent to World Chess Champion Vishy Anand, World No.1 Magnus Carlsen, defending champion Vladimir Kramnik, Levon Aronian, Hikaru Nakamura, Judit Polgar, Michael Adams, Luke McShane and Gawain Jones. Over the next week or so, the players are expected to accept or decline the invitation. The tournament will be a nine-player all-play-all event and carry forward the excitement and thrill of strong chess like last year!

There will be plenty of side chess events for amateurs, children, and others. 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 30 and the traditional fund-raising dinner for CSC will be on December 10.

Do you remember who is the defending champion?
