Anand v Shirov

In what may be a timely antidote to the recent candidates matches, a exhibition match between World Champion Viswanathan Anand and former challenger Alexei Shirov is starting tonight in Leon, Spain. The match is over 6 games and will be played with the fast time limit of G45m+30s per move. The schedule calls for 2 games a day, with a blitz playoff if the match is tied 3-3.
The first game begins at 12:30am Canberra time, and live coverage is at the event website.
