An interesting aspect of the London Chess Classic is the participation of four of the strongest Grandmasters in Britain. It is, surprisingly, a rare achievement to get our top players together in the same tournament.
Luckily for chess fans, the London Chess Classic has managed to bring Grandmasters Michael Adams, Nigel Short, Luke McShane and David Howell back together for the third consecutive year.
Two all-British clashes at the 2009 Classic
In 2009, Howell was on top of the British bunch, finishing just ahead of Adams (on tiebreak, due to a win with the Black pieces). In 2010, it was McShane's turn to finish ahead of his fellow countrymen.
Who will it be in 2011?
