Grand Chess Tour 2016

The 2016 Grand Chess Tour begins this evening in Paris. The format of the series has changed from previous years, introducing 2 Rapidplay/Blitz events to make up for the loss of the Norway Chess Classic.
The first of these events runs over the next 4 days, with a Rapidplay RR, followed by a Blitz Double RR. The lineup is obviously strong, with Magnus Carlsen (as an invited wildcard player)  heading the list. The event broadcast begins at 10pm Canberra time (according to the countdown timer) and all the details can be found here.
