Off to Paris

The holidaying continues at full pace, with a two day trip to Paris starting tomorrow. Unfortunately my timing was a little out, as I am arriving (and departing) a few days before the start of the Paris Grand Prix event. This is the final event in the 2012-2013 FIDE Grand Prix Series, and although the overall winner is already known (Topalov), there is still the second Candidates spot up for grabs. Caruana or Grischuk have the chance to overtake Mamedyarov (if I have read the result table correctly), but only outright first will do.
The whole thin kicks off on the 21st of September and runs through to the 5th of October (by which time I will have moved on to Estonia).
