Anti-Robot question

  1. After his triumph in London, a new event appears in the Norwegian GM´s calendar in January: The 75th Tata Steel Chess Tournament: from 11 to 27 January in Wijk aan Zee. Here's the list of players: GM Carlsen, Magnus NOR GM Aronian, Levon ARM GM Caruana, Fabiano ITA GM Anand, Viswanathan IND GM Karjakin, Sergey RUS GM Nakamura, Hikaru USA GM Wang, Hao CHN GM Leko, Peter HUN GM Giri, Anish NED GM Harikrishna, Pentala IND GM van Wely, Loek NED GM Sokolov, Ivan NED GM L'Ami, Erwin NED GM Hou, Yifan CHN Besides Kramnik, other big names missing are Radjabov, Topalov, Mamedyarov ... it would have been nice to have seen the taking part in this event. What I like about this event is how the organisers are quite willing to sacrifice the tournament category and instead prefer to promote local chess, a concept which not everyone understands (I remember some editions of the Linares tournament without a single Spaniard!). Also interesting is how the inclusion of a female player is now becoming a norm: Hou Yifan, with 2606, is ranked below the 200th spot on the FIDE list... but so what?? In any case, this new edition (75th!!) of a real classic tournament will be interesting. We will have to look closely at Caruana´s performance. Will Aronian prove that his result in London was accidental? maybe. Will Anand wake up this time? I don't think so. An unexpected victory for Chinese Chess by Wang Hao? unlikely. Will this be Nakamura´s tournament? I doubt it. Will Carlsen improve his rating? impossible! Here's the link to the official website, but not much info is available yet: http://www.tatasteelchess.com/
