London Chess Classic 2019
The 11th London Chess Classic (29 November - 8 December) will see World Champion Magnus Carlsen back in action as he will be competing in the finale of the 2019 Grand Chess Tour.
The names of the other three players will only be known at the end of the penultimate leg of the tour, which will start today in Kolkata, India.
As usual, the London Chess Classic will be a huge festival of chess, with something for everyone. Ticket can be purchased to watch the big games in action and there is a plethora of opportunities to play in the large number of other events at Olympia.
Juniors will be in action too; these popular and special days already sold out a couple of weeks ago.
There are too many events to list here, so anyone interested in finding out more should head for the official website of the London Chess Classic.
The first weekend of the Classic will also see the conference devoted to Chess and Female Empowerment.
The extensive programme can be seen here. Judit Polgar will be making an appearance on the Sunday of the conference.
