The Return Of The Kings?

The Return Of The Kings?

| 10 | Chess Event Coverage

The "Kings" Tournament in Medias, Romania was scheduled to take place in June/July this year, but was postponed due to the "global financial crisis and the unstable political situation in Romania".

It had seemed that this indefinite postponement might become permanent, but thankfully it now appears that the 6th Kings Tournament will go ahead later this year.

The official website says that a new schedule will be announced soon, but a recent tweet by Fabiano Caruana reveals the revised dates as being 7-17 November.

The original line-up was to be 2011 winner Magnus Carlsen, Vishy Anand, Teimour Radjabov, Sergey Karjakin, Vassily Ivanchuk and Liviu Dieter Nisipeanu in a 6-player double round-robin.

We will confirm the new line-up here as soon as it is announced!
