Spectators will get their money’s worth both at the venue and in the comfort of their own homes. The games will be accompanied by live commentary from German grandmasters Klaus Bischoff and Sebastian Siebrecht. For English-speaking chess fans the live video stream from the venue will feature commentary from English IM Lawrence Trent, who is perhaps best known for his commentary on the London Chess Classic. The video stream will also be used to broadcast the comments of the players during post-game interviews.

Chess fans can expect exciting games, as the players’ fighting spirit will be boosted by the fact that no draws can be offered before the 40th move. For more information about the event, please visit the official website:
