Grandmaster Tournament 2008
This post will be kept updated as the tournament goes.
The 41th Biel International Chess Festival will take place from July 19th to August 1st 2008.
The six grandmasters will start their tournament on Sunday 20th July, 14.00 local time (12 pm GMT).

Biel is the only town in Switzerland in which French and German are both spoken on an equal basis. The street signs, for example, are written in both languages, and Biel has the open-minded mentality that comes from the mixture of two languages.

Alekseev wins Biel!
