Now that the 39th Chess Oympiad is over, many of you might be suffering from a chess overdose. But we bet that even more chess fans are thinking right now: what's next? It's time to look forward again, as many big chess events are scheduled for the last three months of 2010. Events where you can expect video coverage by ChessVibes.

October 9-15: Grand Slam Masters Final (Bilbao) This is the second part of the same tournament that was held in Shanghai early September, where Alexei Shirov won and Vladimir Kramnik also qualified, in a blitz play-off against Levon Aronian. Already next Saturday the first round will be played, with besides Shirov and Kramnik also Magnus Carlsen and Viswanathan Anand. Like in Shanghai, yours truly will be providing videos for the official website, which will be cross-posted here on ChessVibes. Official site October 16-24: Euopean Club Cup (Plovdiv) The 26th European Club Cup for Men and 15th European Club Cup for Women 2010 take place in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Allowed to play are two clubs per federation in which a national team championship is organised and one club per federation in which no national team championship is organised. Some federations can enter a third team. No doubt many strong players will gather in Plovdiv, the city where the European Individual Championship took place in 2008. Official site

October 20-30: Pearl Spring (Nanjing) The 3rd Pearl Spring tournament, which will be the first in the new Grand Slam cycle, will have last year's convincing winner Magnus Carlsen together with Veselin Topalov, Viswanathan Anand, Wang Yue, Vugar Gashimov and Etienne Bacrot. Together with Macauley Peterson, yours truly will be providing videos for the official website, which will be cross-posted here on ChessVibes. Official site

November 5-19: Tal Memorial + World Blitz (Moscow) From China, Macauley and I will fly directly to Moscow to attend the Tal Memorial and the World Blitz. At the moment of writing the list of participants hasn't been confirmed yet, but surely it will be very strong again. And surely we'll be providing some splashing video coverage from the Russian capital! Official site

December 8-15: London Chess Classic (London) The 2nd London Chess Classic will be held on exactly the same dates as last year, and with one exception it has the same field: Magnus Carlsen, Viswanathan Anand (instead of last year's Ni Hua), Vladimir Kramnik, Hikaru Nakamura, Michael Adams, Nigel Short, Luke McShane and David Howell. We haven't booked yet, but it's a safe bet to expect us in London too... Official site
