Candidates starts Friday

If you are working on Friday, I hope you have internet access. If you are not working, make sure you wake up by 10am for the start of the first round of action. The opening ceremony was today, and Chessbase has some pictures and other info. The event, hosted in London, is primarily sponsored by SOCAR, which is the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic. Azerbaijan is also home to Candidates participant (and 4th ranked player in the World), Teimour Radjabov (pictured below, with his wife).


Besides the official site, you should be able to follow the games live at ChessBomb.
