Botvinnik Memorial is going to take place in Saint-Petersburg quite soon, but this year it is going to happen in the same time with the chess Olympiad in Istanbul (August 24 – September 2). The official site contains a list of registered participants and it’s possible to say that this year the festival will become one of the strongest Russian Swiss events. The strongest players in the list are Alexander Areshchenko (Ukraine), Ernesto Inarkiev (Russia), Sergey Tiviakov (The Netherlands) as well as other Russian grandmasters like Vadim Zvjagintsev, Maxim Matlakov, Artyom Timofeev, Denis Khismatullin, Ildar Khairullin and Igor Lysyj together with Alexander Khalifman. However the whole grandmaster list is far bigger than that. This competition is also one of the Russian Cup tournaments.
