Basically, 4 "regulars", 2 elite GMs with few invitations (Leko, Moro) and 2 dark horses with a chance to shine (Ding Liren, Inarkiev)
Aronian, Grischuk, Kramnik, Gelfand, Leko, Morozevich, Ding Liren, Inarkiev - #Petrosian's Memorial (#Moscow, Nov. 3-11) has quite a line-up
Interestingly, both Shirov-Giri and Timman-Jobava today are R+N endgames with an extra pawn for White in each game
"Offer resignation" button, lol MT @MagnusCarlsen Taking on my 14-year-old self on the @PlayMagnus app. Check it out
I mean, Gelfand was top-3 in the world back in 1990, the year when Carlsen, Karjakin, MVL, Andreikin and Nepo were born!
Boris doesn't have as many fans or hype around him as the upcoming guys, but it takes a lot to consistently play at the very top level
Special professional respect goes to 46-year old Boris Gelfand. He's the kind of dedicated guy who gets the job done no matter what.
Congratulations to @FabianoCaruana and Boris Gelfand on sharing 1st place at the #Baku stage of @chessgrandprix
That was an abrupt way to end a game (Caruana - Tomashevsky). Too bad it hasn't been played out. The final position is quite interesting

#Norway dropped out of #Olympics2022 host bidding. Wow. I guess we were lucky they had allocated the funds for #Tromso2014 after all
Looking forward to watch some top-chess again. Let the Baku GP begin! I will play the next stage in Tashkent, right after match with Shirov.

More like summer RT @JonAcuff There's ice on the cars here in Minneapolis this morning. Is it still September where you live?
