For the second year in a row, "Synergy Group" is organising a supertournament in memory of the tragically short-lived Azeri Grandmaster, Vugar Gashimov. 

Several of the competitors have arrived in Shamkir already and the rest arrive today, the day of the Opening Ceremony. Among the first group is Magnus Carlsen, who was met by many journalists at Baku airport on 13 April. "I respect all the players in the event, all are very strong, but for some reason, Vladimir Kramnik is the one I find it hardest to play against", commented the world champion, when reviewing the list of his rivals. 

Carlsen is well ahead in our readers' poll on Vkontakt. But who do you think will win the event?
