M-Tel Masters Enters the Grand Slam

Date: 12.09.2006

"Super tournament M-Tel Masters has become a part of the Grand Slam in chess. The World Chess Chain is already a fact and it is to start in 2008," the initiator of the idea, Silvio Danailov, broke the news. Danailov, who is the manager of the World Champion, Veselin Topalov (Bul), and director of M-Tel Masters, had negotiated with the organizers of the strongest chesss tournament to meet in Bilbao, Spain, last weekend, where a Grand Slam Association (GSA) was established. Members of GSA are representatives of M-Tel Masters, Corus tournament in Wijk aan Zee, Linares and the tournament People vs. Computers in Bilbao.

A good potential for applying for the World Chess Chain have the tournaments Morelia, Mexico, and Dortmund. One of the proposals at the meeting in Bilbao was that the winners in the four tournaments play a super tournament of the champions as the winner will get a bonus of 300,000 euro. The minimum number of chess players in a competition from the Grand Slam is 6, while the maximum number is 14.
