Once a year some of the world's sharpest minds gather in the Andalusian town of Linares. In the splendid isolation of Don Luis Rentero's hotel Anibal, the leading grandmasters of chess decide, as Garry Kasparov puts it 'who is who for the coming year'. Geuzendam spells out the games, intrigues and conflicts that have made the super tournament a unique tradition. Why does time come to a standstill in this provincial Spanish town when the chess players arrive?
