Recommended Posts

The 45th edition of the Biel Tournament begins today in Switzerland. 6 Gms are taking part:

 

Magnus Carlsen (Norway, Elo 2837)

Hiraku Nakamura (USA, Elo 2778)

Alexander Morozevic (Russia, Elo 2770)

Wang Hao (PRC, Elo 2739)

Etienne Bracto (France, Elo 2713)

Anish Giri (Holland, Elo 2696)

 

The tournament is a double round robin, as it should be!. smile.png

 

Giri has just won the Dutch Championship and a few people are expecting him to do well here as well, but how well?

His rating is actually a little higher (2710 at present) but FIDE only publishes chess ratings on a monthly basis.

By the way, Switzerland would be an awesome country to defect to for Wang Hao, although I can't think of any Chinese Elite player who has "migrated" in recent times. But give them time... wink.png
