Biel 2013

Yesterday evening I could watch the cricket, cycling and golf. Tonight, none of these is still on.
What is on though, is the 2013 Biel Chess Festival. The top section is a 6 player double round robin, with an interesting set of young players, including Bacrot, Vachier-Lagrave and Ding Liren.
The rounds seem to kick off at 10pm Canberra time, and you can watch the live coverage at the tournament website. The first round started an hour ago and already Richard Rapport (HUN) has surprised Vachier-Lagrave by meeting the Ruy Lopez with Bird's Defence.

cricket, cycling and golf... all disappointing for Aussie fans. Watching chess a good option. :)
