World Champion Viswanathan Anand @ Los Angeles in August 2012
Metropolitan Chess, Inc. will be hosting IGM and World Champion Viswanathan Anand in August 2012. He will be leading as an instructor at the Metropolitan Chess 2012 Invitational Camp. This will mark the first time in 17 years that Viswanathan Anand will come to the United States for a chess related purpose.
Many people may remember the 1995 Kasparov - Anand World Championship Match in New York -- the last time Anand was in the United States for a chess related purpose.
Another eight instructors will be teaching at the camp: GM Loek van Wely, GM Melikset Khachiyan, GM Robert Hess, GM Var Akobian, IM Armen Ambartsoumian, IM Andranik Matikozyan, IM Zhanibek Amanov, and FM Aviv Friedman. This will be the strongest team of instructors ever assembled for an instructional camp in the United States.
A soundbite of GM Loek van Wely from the 2011 edition of the camp can be seen below.
