Hi everyone, 

We've just received news that World No. 1 Magnus Carlsen is in India to inspect the venue of the World Chess Championship 2013 in Chennai, India. The final match is going to be held at Hyatt Regency in Chennai. This is the first time Carlsen is visiting India.

He is scheduled to play simultaneous chess with young players at MOP Vaishnav College on Monday. The Norwegian may meet the Tamil Nadu chief minister on Tuesday before he flies back home on the same day. In the first inspection of the venue, Carlsen’s delegation will include his father Henrik Carlsen, his manager Espen Agdestein, and a group of journalists.
Viswanathan Anand’s wife and manager Aruna has already inspected the tournament venue. (Photos via
