Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hello everyone,

FIDEhas announced today that GM Peter Svidler of Russia is going to be the organisers' nominee for the Khanty-Mansiysk in the World Chess Candidates scheduled for March 12-30, 2014. This gives us the following list:

1- Vladimir Kramnik
2- Levon Aronian
3- Veselin Topalov
4- Shahriyar Mammadyarov
5- Dmitry Andreykina
6- Sergey Karjakin
7- Peter Svidler 
8- Viswanathan Anand or Magnus Carlsen (Whoever loses the World Chess Championship 2013 in Chennai)

You may remember that Peter Svidler handed World Chess Challenger Magnus Carlsen a terrible defeat at the London Chess Candidates and Carlsen would not have been in Chennai right now, but for Vladimir Kramnik's equally disastrous loss to Vassily Ivanchuk.
