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. The participants in the YNM GCT tournament will play 9 games of rapid chess and 18 games of blitz for a total prize fund of $150,000.
