Aronian – Kramnik 2012

Levon Aronian

The Aronian – Kramink 2012 chess challenge will be commented live by GM Arkadij Naiditsch and the Chess Evolution team.

You can follow the match daily at the Online Chess Live section.

The match is preparation for Kramnik and Aronian for the upcoming Candidates Tournament in 2013. Classical time control will be used, with a new twist for the show – if the game ends in a draw in under three hours, the players have to play a rapid game (25 minutes with a 10 second increment).

The timing of the match is also interesting as it starts near the end of the World Amateur Chess Championship and finishes just a few days before the World Chess Championship 2012, a conglomerate of events that triggers a very exciting second half of the chess calendar this year.
