Children Go Free at the 2012 London Chess Classic

2012 London Chess ClassicThe 4th London Chess Classic will again be offering free admission to children for the duration of the event that will run from December 1st to 10th 2012. And by popular demand, the organizers are again offering a comprehensive program of schools activities for children.

Adult and junior ticket holders will receive admission to the tournament, being staged at London’s prestigious Olympia Conference Centre, plus a guaranteed seat in the auditorium and access to the Commentary Room, where some of the UK’s leading Grandmasters will be giving their insights on each day’s play and also answering spectator questions on the game.

There’s less than 60 days now till the first move is played at the 4th London Chess Classic.

The field is complete, headed by the world No 1, Magnus Carlsen, the winner of the first two London Chess Classics, who will be looking for revenge by regaining the title from last year’s winner Vladimir Kramnik, the former world champion.

Also in the hunt for their first Classic title will be the reigning World Champion Vishy Anand, who this year successfully defended his title, and world No 2 Levon Aronian, the double gold medal winner at this year’s Istanbul Olympiad.

Completing the nine-player line up is: Hikaru Nakamura, the US champion; Michael Adams, the UK No 1; Luke McShane, the UK No 2; Judit Polgar, the women’s all-time No 1; and Gawain Jones, the 2012 British champion.
