The 2nd London Chess Classic took place 7th - 15th December 2010. Magnus Carlsen was favoured by the scoring system which was three points for a win and one for a draw. He won alone after winning four, losing two and drawing just one game. World Champion Viswanathan Anand and Luke McShane tied for second place.

In this section you can see all the games and related stories.

Shortly after the event finished there was a nice report on chess as a sport by CNN with interviews with World Champion Viswanathan Anand and Garry Kasparov interviewed at the London Chess Classic. See the CNN Report
