The Poikovsky Karpov Chess Tournament 2015, named after the former world champion Anatoly Karpov, is going to take place from 27th September to 8th October. Chessdom will cover the live games with computer analysis by the TCEC medalist engines Komodo, Stockfish, and Houdini.
It will be the 16th edition of the event, which once again will be a strong 10-player round robin tournament.
The winner from 2013, Pavel Eljanov, will not be able to participate as he is currently playing the semi-finals of the FIDE World Chess Cup. Morozevich, the winner of the 2014 edition of Poikovsky Karpov, is going to play this year again (replay Poikovsky Karpov 2014 games). His competitors include the 2700+ GMs Shirov and Korobov, as well as GMs Laznicka, Lysyj, Inarkiev, Smirin, Khismatullin, Sutovsky, and Bologan.
