Biel 2012

With Dortmund just finished, we're going to cover the 45th Biel Chess Festival, starting July the 23rd at 8am ICC time. Numero Uno Magnus Carlsen leads the group of amazingly strong players, that makes this event one of the most interesting of the year! American hero Hikaru Nakamura, Russian Alexander Morozevich , Chinese Wang Hao, French Etienne Bacrot and Dutchman Anish Giri will challenge the Norwegian chess genius in an amazing double round robin 10-rounds tournament. ICC will have Chess.FM on the air with its dream team of commentators, to share with YOU the thrill and the fun during the whole tournament! We will have the usual online trivia contests  where ICC members can win extension to their account, and the Game Of the Day main trivia contest, with one lucky ICC member who will win a 1-year subscription to the best Chess Magazine out there: New in Chess!
