The 78th edition of the famous Wijk aan Zee festival will be held from January 15-31. The organisers have published the list of participants yesterday

At the moment twelve players of the Masters tournament are known:

Magnus CARLSEN
Fabiano CARUANA
Anish GIRI
Ding LIREN
Wesley SO
Sergey KARJAKIN
Michael ADAMS
Shakhriyar MAMEDYAROV
David NAVARA
Hou YIFAN
Wei YI
Loek van WELY.

As the total number of participants is 14, two remaining players are likely to be named in December. One of them will be nominated by the ACP. Curiously enough, three out of 12 known players represent China.

Traditionally, two rounds of the main competition are held outside the main venue. This year, one of the rounds will take place in the Science Center NEMO, whilst the other will be hosted by the Railway Museum in Utrecht.
