One of the chess world’s truly great traditions will see its 31st edition begin on Saturday 28 February. Cappelle la Grande will see some 600 participants from all over the world, including hundreds of titled-players. You can follow the event HERE.
I will be travelling tomorrow to Cappelle. I understand several other Canadians will also be playing. I will try to give a day by day news item on how the tournament develops. Stay tuned!
