  kreugerl: I predict Naka will 'knock em'!
Apr-16-13  waustad: Thanks cg! We go from a slower chess period with some team action plus Dubai, to a Grand Prix tournament coinciding with the Alekhine Memorial and the Capablanca Memorial, both of which start in a couple of days. Finding useful web sites for all three had been frustrating so I'm glad to find a link here. I don't read Russian and the link from 2700chess to the Capablanca Memorial led to a 404 not found error so I'll have to keep looking for more info on the other ones. It does seem ironic that the latter two tournaments start on the same day.
Apr-16-13  waustad: All this and the Chinese championship starts too.
Apr-16-13  waustad: Here is a link to a little information (not much) for the switch in location from Lisbon:
Apr-16-13  Pawn Dillinger: <Eyal> and <waustad>: Thanks! Enjoy the tournament(s).
Apr-16-13  evlozare: <waustad> for your russian website (or other foreign language websites), try using google "chrome" browser. they have a built-in translator you can use.
Apr-16-13  superstoned: Go Gata!
Apr-16-13  Strongest Force: I am wishing the 2 Americans well.
Apr-16-13  messachess: This should be entertaining with Moro there. I hope Topa is coming back with the old flame. He and Moro should then light the place up.--hopefully. And then there is Naka. Someone must have designed this tournament with exciting games in mind.

And then, Radjabov: can he come back after London?

  Eyal: Since according to the GP regulations only the three best results from the four tournaments in which the players participate count, having one bad tournament isn't necessarily a disaster. But for Nakamura, after his terrible performance in London (-3, shared last with Giri), this means very little room for mistakes now - he'll need very good results in all of his three remaining tournaments in order to finish the series in one of the top 2 places (which qualify for the candidates).

  HeMateMe: We have two yanks in the draw! Nak, and Kamsky. USA! USA! Oh, this is chess. I was thinking hockey, for just a moment.
Apr-16-13  Kinghunt: Tomorrow is the arrival day, first round is Thursday, in case anyone's wondering.
Apr-16-13  waustad: I found the time control! The time control used is 40 moves in 2 hours, followed by 20 moves in 1 hour, then 15 minutes plus a 30 second increment after move 60
Apr-16-13  waustad:
Apr-16-13  Blunderdome: Go Radja!
Apr-16-13  fisayo123: A lot of great attacking players in the line-up. Should be a fantastic one.
Apr-16-13  Wyatt Gwyon: We may get to see some great French defenses...
Apr-16-13  WiseWizard: Start time?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Naniwazu: <WiseWizard> 1st round stars at 2 PM local time.
Apr-17-13  Billy Vaughan: I hope Morozevich and Topalov come at full strength. It's been awhile since they terrorized the chess scene and I'm itching for some attacking chess :)
