David Navara and Peter Svidler will determine the strongest    

The Cez Chess Trophy festival, which was officially opened in the evening in Prague, apart from everything is attracting with its creative posters. The readers of Chess-News can easily recall the one that was made for last year's match between Navara and Movsesian. This year the leading GM of Chezh Republic holds the poster of the match consisting of 4 classical games. On the poster the Russian Champion, Peter Svidler, is absorbed in the book "Cricket", while the Champion of Chezh Republic is carried away with "Logic".

According to David GM Svidler wasn't fascinated with the author's idea and wished to have a conversation with him. 

The opening ceremony and the draw was held in the same building as in last year, located in the central part of the city - Square Malostranska. Actually, the "ceremonies" lasted for only several minutes. The usual organizer of the event Pavel Matocha invited the opponents to the stage and the sponsor's representative took black color for Svidler.

Unlike previous years the match will take place in the building which is situated in a few minutes walk from one of the main attractions of Prague - the Charles Bridge.
