The London Candidates Tournament
London is the place to be at the moment for chessplayers everywhere. First the Classic in December and now the world's best are doing battle at the candidates tournanment. Through the hard work of Dave Ross, a place for a few lucky Combined Services players was found at the opening ceremony and the first days play (sadly, round one's games turned out to be a rather 'peaceful' affair). Here is a great picture of the team with World Number One Magnus Carlson care of Dave Ross.
