1) Introduction

My thanks to Olexandr Prohorov, Luiz Roberto Da Costa Jr, Igor Kragelj, Paulo Rocha, Tom Piceu, Hugh Brodie, Mitko Iliev, Ariel Fabian and everyone else who helped with this issue.

The Sinquefield Cup is reaching the final stages and it looks like Levon Aronian is favourite to take first place with 2 of the 5 games concluded in the 8th round. Magnus Carlsen threw away much of his huge advantage against Hikaru Nakamura and a draw is looking likely. Elsewhere Nils Grandelius won the Abu Dhabi Masters. It felt like a quieter week but there are still over 4000 games in the issue.

Hope you enjoy this issue.
