Gashimov Memorial

The next "Super-GM" event on the calendar, the 2014 Gashimov Memorial, starts this coming Sunday. The top group contains Carlsen, Nakamura, Karjakin, Caruana, Radjabov and Mammedyarov (every player rated over 2700!). The B group is a 10 player tournament head by Wang Hao and Pavel Eljanov.
The schedule is 5 rounds, 1 rest day and then another 5 rounds. The games start at the reasonable time of 8pm (Canberra time), so you can probably catch most of the action before bedtime. Further details, as well as links to live coverage can be found at the tournament website.
