Which of the October supertournaments will strike?

Chessvibes reports abоut two traditional competitions which are scheduled to take place early October: Kings Tournament will be held in Bucharest from 6th to 17th October, а Final Masters from 7th to 12th in Bilbao. Both are part of so called Grand Slam, but now it's more of a formality if considering that Bilbao competition should gather the winners of the previous stages, while the Romanian tournament is so to say out of cycle because of the full chess calendar.

Five GMs will play in King's tournament: 

  • Fabiano Caruana
  • Ruslan Ponomariov
  • Wang Hao
  • Teimour Radjabov
  • Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu

Four to compete in Bilbao:

  • Levon Aronian
  • Shakhriyar Mamedyarov
  • Maxime Vachier-Lagrave
  • Michael Adams

Both are double round-robin classical events. The points in Spanich tournament will be traditionally counted in "football system", while all kinds of negotiations between the players should be done through the arbiter.   

Another supertournament start on October 4th and will last till 15th - that is Russian championship Superfinal. The following GMs will participate:

  • Vladimir Kramnik
  • Peter Svidler
  • Sergey Karjakin
