The Mtel Masters 2009 kicked off today in Sofia, Bulgaria. While the tournament coverage can be found at www.mtelmasters09.com live coverage for the first round is not happening due to "technical difficulties"
The time control is 40 moves in 90 minutes, followed by 1 hour to finish. As there is no mention of an increment I assume that time scrambles will be part of the fun for spectators. Also no draw offers can be made during the game, and requests for a draw must be made to the arbiters.
