The Cast

The Montreal International Chess Festival runs from July 19 - July 29th. I have no information about time controls, simuls and other side events. Given that the tournament runs ten days, and there are ten players participating, we can infer that there will be no rest days (assuming there is an opening ceremony) or one rest day (if there is no opening ceremony).

I will provide round reports and photos.
