Poikovsky gathered intellectuals - bespectacled and not (PHОТОS)

The bespectacled hare-intellectual with chess board is the symbol of the 15th Anatoly Karpov tournament taking place in Poikovsky. 

The opening ceremony of the competition was held at the sport complex Neptun which traditionally hosts the event. 

The 12th world champion welcomed the participants and guests

Twofold winner of the event Etienne Bacrot of France gave a speech. Viorel Bologan and Alexey Shirov who also had won the tournament "helped" him out. 

The event wouldn't be organised without politicians' and sponsors' help

Not surprisingly there would be no tournament without the players
