Dundee 2017

In 1867, Dundee in Scotland hosted a tournament that featured elite players such as Steinitz and Blackburne. One hundred years later, in 1967, the centenary event included Larsen and Gligoric. Now in 2017, it’s 150 years after the original event, and Dundee is again hosting an international tournament.

You can check out the full line up at the following link, but I will highlight the participation of two of the Quality Chess team: GM Colin McNab and IM Andrew Greet. And right now in Round 1 they are playing each other. Live coverage here.

    @Thomas

    Even with Israel 2 hours ahead of Scotland, I can’t see how that is possible. Maybe his final-round game in Israel was played in advance?

    @John Shaw
    You must be right. His “live” game from this morning at chess24 has no moves.
