Yet there is always something different about a day at the London Chess Classic, as the delegates have the opportunity to enjoy all other aspects of the famous chess festival.
We had a bumper crop of 15 delegates for the Classic Training Day. Olympia, the Classic venue since the start of the series back in 2009, is no longer available to us but we found the Cavendish Conference Centre to be ideal for our needs.
Another bonus when working at the Classic is the number of guest stars who can come to the training room to meet the delegates. On this occasion we had Malcolm Pein, Chris Fegan, Matt Piper and Aga Milewska, all from CSC and also Grandmasters Matthew Sadler and John Emms.
More dates will soon be added to the 2021-22 tour, so keep an eye on this page.
