It doesn't get any more exciting than this if you're a Chess fan! Here is a list of all eight participants followed by the entire schedule of games, most of which start at 10am EST / 9am CST.

Magnus Carlsen (NOR) Rated 2872

(As an added bonus you may also follow the nTCEC Computer Chess seasons in the Fischer Room which will run over the next few months, where the top silicon Chess players play round robins against all their chipset peers. Featuring the amazing Houdini 3 engine along with classics such as Shredder and Junior and the surprising upstart Gull program!)
