ICC and Chess.FM (and Tony Rook) cover the Linares Super-GM Tournament!

ICC and Chess.FM will bring you the games of the strongest and probably
most exciting event of the year - the "Ciudad de Linares" Super-GM
Tournament from Linares, Spain from February 23 to March 10.  Five of
the top six rated players in the world, plus the current FIDE champion
will compete. This year, to counter short draws, the players are not
being paid appearance fees, and prizes have been raised to more than 
$350,000 (with over $125,000 to the winner).

ICC will show the games live each day at 9:30am ICC time, accompanied
by live GM commentary. Tony Rook is returning to Chess.FM to host
complete start-to-finish coverage; a team of top GM analysts will join
Tony. March 1 and March 7 are rest days.  The tournament is a double  
round robin with seven players and 14 rounds.
