Although the line-up is maybe not that impressive as in the last few years, the chess tournament in dutch Wijk aan See is still the "must-see" event for chess fans from all over the world. The first round of this tournament with fighting chess and two victories from the two top seeded players (Anand and Topalov) promises a great tournament. The best game of the first round was imho the sharp sicilian english attack in the game Karjakin-Anand; even though I think that the youngster has run into a home preparation from former FIDE world champion, he deserves a lot of credit for choosing to play such a sharp variation against the second rated player in the world. 



Karjakin-Anand 24. ... Nc7!
