Carlsen vs the World in Mexico - Vote Chess

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

Hi everyone,

There are two interesting chess events taking place this weekend in Mexico. The first event will be the Torneo Cuadrangular where Magnus Carlsen will meet Lazaro Bruzon, Judit Polgar, and Manuel Leon Hoyos. The tournament is a knockout event composed of mini matches. The second event is with Carlsen playing against the World in simultaneous games. The tournament will be a variant of vote chess. Three GMs will be suggesting what they consider to be the best moves in the game, while the audience will choose between them in a given time frame. Magnus will play on two boards, one of them against 2000 players in the Sala Magna Nezahualcoyotl, while on the other against thousands of internet spectators. To complete his visit in Mexico, Carlsen will give an open press conference at 12:00 the day after the Carlsen vs The World games. Stay tuned with all the live action at the official website of the competition.
