Biel begins

After a little break, the Category XX+ GM circuit has restarted with the Biel International Chess Festival. The 6 player event is headlined by Magnus Carlsen, with Caruana, Shirov, Morzevich, Pelletier and Vachier-Lagrave making up the field. Carlsen was the only winner on the first day, beating Pelletier. The tournament is using the 3-1-0 scoring system, so Carlsen is already 2 points ahead of the rest of the field.
