Live games of Grand Swiss 2019
The erstwhile chess.com Isle of Man International has evolved to become the newest addition to the World Championship cycle 2019-2020. The FIDE chess.com Grand Swiss, as it is now being called, has officially been inaugurated yesterday (October 9th) at the Comis Hotel in Douglas, Isle of Man. 154 top class Grandmasters from 42 nations are all set to battle it out. A place in the eight-player Candidates tournament, to be held in March-April of next year, is at stake. Moreover, the prize fund for this eleven-round swiss event is a whopping $433,000 with the first place worth an eye-popping $70,000. The latter detail has attracted none other than the current World Champion Magnus Carlsen and World no.2 Fabiano Caruana to join the party. There are fifteen Indian players, led by the Madras Tiger Vishy Anand himself, who are competing in this event. On this page you can follow all the action live with timely commentary and updates.
