The 2nd London Chess Classic will be the strongest chess tournament ever to be held in Britain, with eight of the world’s best players playing from 8-15 December 2010 at the Olympia Conference Centre. Junior attendance is free, adults are £10 for weekdays and £15 for weekend) - see http://www.londonchessclassic.com for schedule and info.
I went with Rhys last year and in addition to being SO CLOSE to the world champion players there were all sorts of demonstrations, commentaries and an open contest. Quite an experience and you got a neat lanyard thrown in :-)
John Hall is intending to attend this year and would be interested in knowing of others who intend to go along. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
