Linares 2009

With the World Chess Challenge starting first, the annual Linares tournament kind of slipped under my radar. They have already reached round 5 (of 14 rounds) and Lev Aronian and Alexander Grischuk share the lead on 3.5. In terms of the 'action quotient' only 30% of the games have been decisive (6 out of 20), although there have been some quite hard fought draws.
Live coverage (plus various other links) can be found here.

Hi Shaun

Yes, all of the games played at Linares have been put up on OzChess:

Linares Games - Rd 1 - 6

People are encouraged to scroll through the games at their own pace. It would be good prep for the upcoming Doeberl tournament. :)

Best Regards,
