Veselin Topalov hasn't played much after he lost the 2010 World Championship match against Vishy Anand last year, but soon he'll be 'back in the saddle'. Yesterday in Dublin he told Jonathan O'Connor, the chairman of the Irish Chess Union, that he'll be playing in the European Team championships in November in Greece, and 'also Wijk aan Zee and Linares'. At the same time this means good news about Linares, which now definitely seems to be returning onto the chess calendar in 2012.
