Also, in case people are interested, an annual event that’s been running for decades at Wijk aan Zee is on again and has the two top players in the world amongst others battling it out – Carlsen and Aronian. You can watch the games – live – here. They even have a computer to tell you how each player is going and what moves they should be making and anticipating.
