Grand Prix time

Despite concerns it would not be happening, the 2014-15 FIDE Grand Prix is almost up and running. The first event of the 4 tournament series begins today in Baku, Azerbaijan, with play in the 12 player round robin beginning tomorrow. The field is headed World No 2 Fabiano Caruana, with Grischuk, Karjakin and Nakamura some of the other big names. The tournament runs until the 15th of October, and is the first in a series that includes events in Tehran, Tashkent and Khanty-Mansisyk.
The tournament web site is here, and games start at the rather pleasant time (for Canberra) of 8pm in the evening.
