64th Russian Chess Championships 2011 (Final)
Russian Championship super-final in August includes Kramnik
Mark Crowther - Thursday 30th June 2011
The Russian Chess Championships in August will be one of the highlights of the year. The field will be Vladimir Kramnik, Peter Svidler, Sergey Karjakin, Ian Nepomniachtchi, Alexander Grischuk, Alexander Morozevich, Alexander Galkin and Artyom Timofeev. The event has taken place in December in recent years but in order to secure the participation of the best players it had to move to avoid clashes with the London Chess Classic and an event in China. This news came as part of an article with an interview with Alexander Morozevich where he reveals that he considered himself retired since January 2010 but now is on the point of resuming his career.
