GP No. 5

After starting with such fanfare, the FIDE Grand Prix series seems to have settled down into a more routine existence. In part this is due to the difficulties the series underwent as potential hosts dropped out, but also due to the simple fact that the novelty has worn off. Of course they are still important events, with a gathering of some of the worlds best players providing an excelent feast of chess.
The latest series is underway in Jermuk, Armenia, and after 3 rounds Ceperinov, Aronian and Leko lead with 2/3. Full coverage, including live games can be found at the official site.
