So, I guess no one but me will actually be interested in anything I'll post here, but you can't blame me for trying
Here is a thread in which you can talk about high level players, tournaments and such. What made me start this thread is this :
18 players with a rating of 2700 elo or more (they're usually called "super grand-masters") are participating in this, so nearly half of the 42 with such a rating at the moment, plus, the World champion, Magnus Carlsen, is in this open tournament (and it's a first since 2007 for him, since it involves more risk if you lose and usually grants less money if you win than the "only SGM tournament" in which he usually plays).
I'm very hyped for this
