Update 3 April, 12.58 CET: the pairings of the first round are now in XLS-format on the site (men and women). Mamedyarov and Ivanchuk are missing unfortunately; it seems they were snatched by the Spaniards since they are on the participants list of the big rapid thing 'Villa de Ca?ɬ±ada de Calatrava' the coming weekend!

Tomorrow the 8th Individual European Chess Championships starts. This great event will be played until 16 April in the International Congress Centre in Dresden (Germany). It will be an 11 round Swiss with a rate of play that has become quite common by now: 90 minutes for 40 moves plus 30 minutes for the rest of the game plus 30 seconds per move.

Top players of the men's event: Mamedyarov (AZE, 2754), Ivanchuk (UKR, 2750), Jakovenko (RUS, 2691), Nisipeanu (ROM, 2689), Van Wely (NED, 2683), Tiviakov (NED, 2682), Vallejo Pons (ESP, 2679), Karjakin (UKR, 2678), Eljanov (UKR, 2675), Almasi (HUN, 2669) and Malakhov (RUS, 2663). In the women's event the elo favourites are the Kosintseva sisters (Nadezhda 2475, RUS and Tatiana 2459, RUS), Stefanova (2496, BUL), Socko (2481, POL) and Muzychuk (2474, SLO).
