Linares the strongest tournament of the year begins tomorrow. Unlike the Corus festival this is a small round robin event, because of this the players take short draws alot of the time with a +2 score sometimes good enough to win first place. Hopefully this year we will have more fighting chess, players like Radjabov, Carlson, Ivanchuk, Topalov, Shirov, are not likely to disappoint.

Players list
GM Viswanathan Anand 2799
GM Veselin Topalov 2780
GM Alexei Shirov 2755
GM Peter Leko 2753
GM Vassily Ivanchuk 2751
GM Levon Aronian 2739
