2013 World Championship Candidates starts tomorrow in London!

The strongest tournament in the history of chess , 2013 World Championship Candidates , takes place in London from March 14 – April 2nd, and is an 8-player double round-robin, with the winner earning the right to face the current World Champion, Vishy Anand from India, in a match later this year. I’ll be very excited to follow this incredible event for the next two weeks and a half. Who am I rooting for? My favorite is the strongest player in the world by rating today, Magnus Carlsen from Norway. He is 22 years old and his rating is astonishing 2872 points. So go Magnus! Below is a picture of Magnus& yours truly in NYC last year. The main event website, where you can view games live, with live grandmaster commentary , video reports, etc is here .
