  morfishine: Wow, the Spring leg runs into August...I guess there is no Summer leg
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: <the Spring leg runs into August>

Just barely. :) We will have Summer and Fall legs, one or both of them will just have to be a little shorter.

Determining when legs end has always been largely a function of finding a break between major tournaments that would be long enough to serve as the necessary hiatus between legs (about a week).

According to the current forecast at, late July is simply booked solid. There just isn't a long enough break to stop until Aug 2, when there is an opening until Aug 8 - and even this will be on the "crowded" side.

  Count Wedgemore: The GRENKE Round 6: Naiditsch - Anand bet is wrongly stating Vallejo Pons as Anand's opponent instead of Naiditsch. You see it when you open the link.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: That's a simple fix for the bookie. So long as the bet is listed properly in the 'Header' & it is. Should be corrected though.
