There are still a few places available in the tournament, and for a grandmaster with 2650+ or female player with 2475+ rating they might be able to give conditions. Contact @SunwayChessOpen if you're interested 😎🙌 #chess #SunwaySitges https://t.co/AJxLmdQ9hP

Playing Sunway Sitges International Chess Festival and FIDE World Rapid and Blitz Championships just a couple of days after that sounds like a great combination to end the chess year! And flying from Barcelona to Sain Petersburg is really easy! :) https://t.co/kB8lJsnEAU

It should be 11 or 13 games, where World Champion decides if he wants to have extra white or not, and the player who has more white have to win the match! If it is draw, then player who had more black wins the match. With this format we will not see short draws! @advorkovich https://t.co/JJZWApZOyI

Well, if the video was showing just what we can see on the screen in this GIF, then it's not so big deal. It maybe just 1% of Caruana's preparation for the match. Also, it may even influence Carlsen negatively if he gives to it too much importance. LET'S PLAY #CHESS https://t.co/oVNKq4PZ54
