Late night chess from Corus

Once again being positioned on the other side of the globe means that good chess action is occurring in the middle of the night (Canberra time). The Corus tournament has just begun, with the tournament website covering all the games from the top 3 sections. However with the 11:30 pm starts, I'll be getting a little opening theory, but probably not much else (eg Tiviakov v Carlsen is a Ruy Lopez Worrall, which I played very early in my chess career).
Late night coverage of European sporting events is something that we in Australia are probably used to. In fact during the 2002 Football World Cup (Japan/ Sout Korea) Lex Marinos commented that he wasn't used to viewing soccer at 7:30 in the evening, so he would video tape the game, then get up at 4:00 am to watch it.
