Anand, Topalov and semi-retired Wang to play at Norway Chess

From 31 May to 10 June, the Norway Chess Tournament will be held for the tenth time in Stavanger. The lineup is headed by Magnus Carlsen, who will be joined by a number of very active players and a few surprising inclusions. Vishy Anand and Veselin Topalov do not play often lately, but will make their way to Stavanger, much like Richard Rapport and Teimour Radjabov, who will participate despite having to play the Candidates shortly after the event comes to an end. Perhaps the most surprising participant, though, is Wang Hao, who had announced his retirement from professional competitions about a year ago.
