Gross Chest Tournament

Something got lost in the translation in this headline that GM Susan Polgar posted at her blog. Also notice the picture - the black king and queen are positioned properly, but the white king and queen are reversed.

And here is the rest of the report:

2737.3 is the average ELO coefficient of the 6 participants of the 4th chest tournament ‘Mtel Masters', which starts in Sofia.

The Bulgarian capital gathers the chest elite as 4 of the competitors are among the TOP 11 of FIDE ranglist - Levon Aronian (Armenia), Teimour Radjabov (Azerbaijan) and Vasiliy Ivanchuk (Ukraine), who just an year ago was 2nd in the world.

Two Bulgarians will also take part in the tournament, the world famous Veselin Topalov and his secondary Ivan Cheparinov.

The Chinese Bu Siyandji also will take part in the competition.

‘Mtel Masters' is part of the chain ‘Grand Slam'. For the first time the chest parties will be played in a 10 tones ‘aquarium', intended to isolate the noise in the hall.
