It's the last disco in town

Despite almost every chess event in the world being cancelled, the 2020 Candidates Tournament is still going ahead. As it only consists of 8 players, there is very little health risk attached to it, but FIDE are still taking plenty of precautions.
Today there is the opening ceremony (no doubt a somewhat subdued affair), while tomorrow sees the first round.  Each round is at 4pm Yekaterinburg time, which is 10pm Canberra time. There is live coverage from the official site, and I assume that most of the major chess sites will be carrying their own coverage or streaming commentary.
