    Ok, not a fashionable choice, but you can't go past Topalov in tournament play.

    I'll also be following Navara with interest after some of his recent amazing results.

    I think last time there was a poll for one of these things I voted for Aronian and he scored about minus three out of ten.

    Let the games begin!

    From http://susanpolgar.blogspot.com/ re the top seeds

    "Title - Name - Country - Rating - World Ranking

    GM Veselin Topalov BUL 2783 1
    GM Viswanathan Anand IND 2779 2
    GM Vladimir Kramnik RUS 2766 3
    GM Levon Aronian ARM 2744 7

    There are a few important notes about the top 4 seeds. After the drawing today, it has been determined that Topalov will have 7 games with White and 6 with Black. Anand, Kramnik and Aronian all have 6 games with White and 7 with Black.

    Another important note is Topalov will have White against both Kramnik and Anand while Kramnik has White against Anand. Anand is the unlucky one with 2 Blacks against his main rivals. Aronian has White against Kramnik and Topalov and Black against Anand."

    ****************************
    Just as interesting to me are the games of
    GM Magnus Carlsen NOR 2690 24

    Here is a short biography from http://www.chessgames.com/

    MAGNUS CARLSEN
    (born Nov-30-1990) Norway
    Magnus Carlsen was born November 30, 1990. He learned chess at the age of eight and received the title of International Master in 2003. In 2004, after having gained over 300 rating points in little over a year, he became the second-youngest grandmaster in chess history, behind only Sergey Karjakin. With wins over players such as Nigel Short and Alexey Shirov under his belt, Carlsen hopes to continue improving his rating and become a contender for the World Championship in the future. He took a big step toward that goal by placing tenth at the FIDE World Cup (2005), becoming the youngest player ever to qualify for the Candidates.


    How many scalps will he take?

    The boy is an awesome player. I talked with his father in Austria a few years back, who has been playing tournaments longer than the boy is alive and yet only has a rating of about 2000. He simply could not understand how his son aquired the 'gift'.
    Great people.

    It's a very impressive lineup this year. Good to see both Carlsen and Karjakin in the lineup, along with Navara and Radjabov. The "Dutch Open" has been kept to a minimum this year, with just Van Wely and Tiviakov.

    I cant seem to find a link for the live games on www.coruschess.com. Chessbase only say to watch on playchess, when they normally also give the main website live games link as well.

    People on playchess / schach.de are having problems accessing any live site to watch the games also. Most people think its a first round delay problem. If they get going early enough ill post some games directly in here if anyone is interested? Ill wait out.
