Bilbao Grand Slam Final With GM Peter Svidler

Veselin Topalov and Magnus Carlsen have been the two stars enthralling the
large audience each day surrounding the sound-proofed air-conditioned glass
arena on Plaza Nueva at the Grand Slam Final in Bilbao, Spain.

With the new scoring system of 3-points for a win in play, Topalov leads with
9/15 after beating Magnus Carlsen and Vishy Anand in successive rounds!  But
just a point behind there lurks 17-year-old Norwegian ace Magnus Carlsen, who
on Friday deposed Anand as the new #1 in the unofficial virtual ratings.

We could be in for a dramatic final week at the Grand Slam Final - and ICC
Chess.FM will bring you all the action as it happens, when it happens.  We
have Macauley Peterson bringing you videos from Bilbao at -
where you will also find John Henderson's Picture Gallery of this unique
tournament played in a glass playing arena in the middle of Plaza Neuva.

But not to be missed is the move-by-move commentary on Chess.FM - and this
coming Monday, September 8 at 11am ET, our very special guest in the
commentary booth with Mig Greengard will be none other than four-time Russian
champion GM Peter Svidler - dare you miss Monday's action here on ICC?
