Are you rooting for Levon Aronian to win the GP? I won't be surprise if Levon Aronian is the sentimental favorite for most Filipino chess fans to win Jermuk. Of course the Barong Tagalog outfit he wore during the final day and awarding ceremony in Mainz Chess Classic endear many Filipino chess fans, not to mention his romantic involvement with half Filipina, WIM Arianne Caoili of Australia.
The coverage of the FIDE Grand Prix, no matter how controversial they may seemed to many, remains superb compare to other chess super tournament. For some reasons that the GP were being covered in plain English. Then there's a game by game commentaries and of course, live games.
