FIDE Candidates Chess Tournament

The FIDE Candidates tournament begins today and ends on the 22nd.  The winner becomes the Challenger will face the reigning World Chess Champion, Ding Liren, most likely at the end of this year in a location yet to be determined.

The field features two Americans–Nakamura, who I’ll be rooting for, as well as Caruana–and three players from India.   Eight of the world’s top players going at each other twice results a small trove of well-played games.

The games start at 2pm Eastern, and can be followed live through
