Dennis Monokroussos in Gibraltar 2014

The strongest ever round-robin by rating gets underway today in Zurich (average rating: 2801!), and in the meantime what is possibly the strongest open tournament of the year is also underway, in Gibraltar. It started yesterday, and among the players there are more than 60 GMs, nine of whom are rated over 2700. The website coverage of the event is generally excellent, so if you're looking for a little spectator break during the day it's worth checking out.
