Christian Montenegro - World Chess Championship London Grand Prix

Today marks the 11th and final round of the World Chess Qualifiers held at Somerset House, London, which followers of the game may have noticed is looking a fair bit slicker than in previous years. The Championship has recently been rebranded by design giants Pentagram, with the opening tournament beautifully decorated with Christian Montenegro's duelling knights.

Qualifying players from the London Grand Prix will go on to the later stages in Tashkent, Lisbon, Madrid, Berlin and Paris, before a winner is crowned World Champion.

More information on the redesign can be found on Pentagrams site here, while tournament information can be found here.
