    [Mod note: these posts have been split from the International Tournament Invitations thread, which is now locked. Feel free to discuss any invitations that are posted on that thread here, or also anything you'd like me to keep an eye on - KB]

    Great thread...
    Kevin, James disappointed on missing Thailand and Zonal...
    Are their any tournaments OS that you would think suitable for James from about July?
    hopefully?

    The " Hindu " reports the Anand-Carlsen World title match 12 games will be played in Chennai 6-26 Nov 2013 for 290 million rupees.

    FIDE have not yet made any statement about the match at present.

    Thanks Peter. It would be great to see part of a world champs match.

    Don't book your ticket yet. Carlsen wants a neutral venue with a bidding procedure in accordance with FIDE regulations. The memorandum of understanding has been signed by FIDE and Chennai without agreement from Carlsen.

    Thread split

    I've split the original thread so people can post whatever they want about the invitations on this one without it making the main thread difficult to follow. It's important that people who are looking for invitations can find them easily without having to wade through chatter and requests.
