Corus 2007 Preview
The annual Corus Tournament in Wijk aan Zee (January 12-28, 2007) promises to be one of the strongest chess events in history. A Category 19 with an average ELO of 2721, it will feature 14 impressive Super-GMs in the A-event, including World Champion Kramnik, top rated Topalov, and a host of other one-name greats including Anand, Svidler, Aronian, Shirov, and Ponomariov. There is an excellent preview titled "The Great Trio!" by GM Alex Finkel at the World Chess Network site. It looks like world chess will be off to a great start in 2007.
