2012-2013 Grand Prix, Tashkent

I added the crosstable and PGN for the 2012 Tashkent event to my page on the 2012-2013 Grand Prix. After the 2012 London event, this is the second of six events. According to the FIDE calendar, the third event will take place in Lisbon starting April 2013.

Media coverage for Tashkent was considerably more subdued than for London, perhaps because the organizer, Agon, has not yet hit full stride. The Candidates Matches for the current cycle, to be held in March 2013 in London, and the Lisbon leg of the next cycle's Grand Prix will show us what Agon is capable of doing.
