If you fancy a free trip in February to a place that will be much colder than England at present – Moscow – then this could be the online event for you.
Gibtelecom Chess Festival
Details of this hugely success event can be found on www.gibraltarchess.com. Entries so far include Bacrot, Movessian, Vllejo Pons, Adams, Kamsky and Alexandra Kosteniuk – Women’s World Chess Champion.
It may be too late to entry for the Masters as it is probable the venue cannot take any more players. But there is room in the Challengers and Amateur Tournaments held in the morning.
English administrators of the event include Stewart Reuben, David Welch, Peter Purland, David Sedgwick, Priscilla Morris, John Saunders, Jack Rudd and Steve Hughes
