Aronian-Kramnik friendly match

Kramnik vs. Aronian match, 2012

With the World Championship only a few weeks away, everyone is anticipating the big match. However, there may be a match that will capture quite a bit of interest in that it is a championship-caliber event. Both Vladimir Kramnik (ranked #4) and Levon Aronian (ranked #2) have decided to stage a “friendly” match of six classical games (40/120, 20/60, 15m/30s).

The match is being held in Savoy Baur en Ville Hotel in Zurich, Switzerland. This match will be an incredible measuring stick for Aronian as this is his first classical match. The first match begins today with a rest day after every two games and ending on April 28th.
