Tal Memorial 2013

This year's Tal Memorial is scheduled to begin today

The list of participants is mouth watering -

1 Magnus Carlsen NOR
2 Vladimir Kramnik RUS
3 Sergey Karjakin RUS
4 Viswanathan Anand IND
5 Fabiano Caruana ITA
6 Hikaru Nakamura USA
7 Shakhriyar Mamedyarov AZE
8 Alexander Morozevich RUS
9 Boris Gelfand ISR
10 Dmitry Andreikin RUS

The last player, Andreikin , is a very promising young grandmaster who has not received world wide attention. His inclusion in this event should change that. He played well in the World Blitz recently, finishing 9th.

Andreikin, Dmitry

Would be better if Mamedyarov and Gelfand were replaced by Aronian and Ivanchuk... :P

Since i don't really like Carlsen, this times around i will support Carlsen!

Reason is since in many tournaments and elections, all players or candidates that i support all this tournament i will 'support' Carlsen! :)

Go Carlsen Go!

Chess Odyssey supports Carlsen!

...and hope that Anand will lose in this tournament.

why are people hoping that someone lose? is that a negative thinking isn't it?
