Gibraltar 2019

Gibraltar 2019 begins this evening (or 1am tomorrow morning to be precise), and once again a very strong field is taking part. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave is the top seed, with Lev Aronian, Wesley So and Yangi Yu, close behind. Unlike previous years, Australia isn't that well represented, with IM Gary Lane (who plays GM Pavel Eljanov on board 20) the lone Aussie.
The tournament runs for the next 10 days, and there is live commentary for each of the rounds. The tournament website is https://www.gibchess.com and all the details of the main event (plus supporting tournaments) can be found there.
