According to London Chess Classic (LCC) director Malcolm Pein, the staging of the Candidates Tournament (October 24th - November 12th) raises questions about the 4th LCC planned to be held in December. "Although some players have indicated they would still play the 4th LCC, I am not sure if the public and particularly the media would have the appetite for two elite tournaments in London staged so close together." - says Pein on the webpage of The Week in Chess.   

"I will have to consider the effect of FIDE's move on the Classic which I suspect cannot be held in its current form this year" - notes Pein.
