Spectators may not be familiar with Leuven, but you should be. This city was a commercial centre and county capital more than a century before Brussels was even founded. Boasting the largest University in the Benelux Union, the city is a rich piece of European history waiting to be discovered. World Champion Magnus Carlsen won last year in fine style, but with $150,000 on the line, you can be sure that all the players will try to top the field.
