ACP Premium Member to receive the wild-card in Poikovsky

The Association of Chess Professionals has reached an agreement with the organizers of Poikovsky - one of the strongest Grandmaster tournaments in the World. The tournament in Poikovsky, named after A.E.Karpov, will take place between 10 - 21 May, 2014 with the participation of the World's best players and the ACP wild-card.

The organizers of Poikovsky have kindly agreed to provide one spot for the ACP nominee. The ACP Board has decided to select its wild-card among ACP Premium Members*, based on the ACP Tour standings on 15 March, 2014.

On behalf of the ACP and the players, I'd like to thank A.E.Karpov and the organizers of the tournament for the provided opportunity.
