In just over 2 hours time (2pm UTC) I will be commentating live at the most eagerly awaited event of the year - The Candidates, a 14 double round robin which will decide who will take on Vishy Anand for the World Chess Championship later this year.

As I am sure you are all aware, the lineup is quite stunning: The top 4 are all here (Carlsen, Kramnik, Aronian & Radjabov) and with Grischuk, Svidler, Ivanchuk and Gelfand completing the field, we are in for a truly wonderful 3 weeks of chess.

Follow me live from the official London candidates and of course check out the coverage that our very own will be providing on genuinly the most exciting event in the chess calendar in recent memory.

Let the games begin!
