Weekend tournaments are not just for club players and today sees the final of a short rapid chess tournament in Leon, Spain, which will see world No.1 Anand take on the controversial former World Champion, Topalov.

Anand beat Ponomariov 3-1 in the semi-final and Topalov beat Kasimjanov 2.5-1.5 to set up this tantalising encounter. 

Four games are to be played at a rate of 20 minutes for the whole game, with an increment of 10 seconds after each move. In case of a draw, there will be a tie-break in form of blitz games.

Games start at 16:30 local time, 14:30 GMT, 10:30am EDT.
