2016 European Championship

The 2016 European Championship is currently underway, with just over 100 GM's playing in the 245 player field. As with recent editions of this event, there are a few 2700+ players (5 this year) followed by a larger bunch of 2600+ GM's (another 55). For some players (at the top), it is about winning the title and prize money, but for the larger group, just grabbing a World Cup qualifying spot is the aim.
At this stage 3 rounds have been players, and there is still a large group on a perfect score. I would normally point you at the organisers page for further info, and while it is a very nice website, it lacks the one thing that makes it truly useful, content. So instead, hit for the results, and for the live game coverage.
