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
We think this is one of the most scenic places in the world to play a chess tournament. Sunway Sitges is here with its 5th edition from 13-23 December and ChessBase India's Rupali Mullick brings you a curtain raiser article:
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! @advorkovichhttps://t.co/JJZWApZOyI
@polborta Dear Mr. Svidler, as organizers, we are trying to contact you in order to check whether there would be a chance to see you playing in our tournament in Sitges (Barcelona, Spain) in a couple of weeks. Can we use private messages, mail or whatever? Thank you!
Yesterday night I passed by the street where I took this photo, a couple of years ago. It is one of my favorites, because it was a magical moment: her voice was amazing, and my daughters were fascinated. https://t.co/SSsR509W72
El empate en la 6ª partida del Mundial tras 6,5 horas dará mucho que hablar. Carlsen estaba perdido, según las máquinas. De momento, la partida está en mi columna. Sigue crónica muy pronto: https://t.co/gFedye4Yfw
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
We'll be broadcasting this edition of the tournament in December for the first time. Who do you thinks is the best commentator and, thus, who would you choose for commenting games? @chess24com@chesscom@ChessBase
FIDE President Arkady Dvorkovich: "I would like to reassure you that we will pay more attention to the women’s chess in the future. So everyone could enjoy chess in all its beauty as it is art, sport, and science." #WWCC2018 @advorkovich #ugrachess https://t.co/EymfW0Qq84
Beautiful (and short) opening ceremony in Khanty-Mansiysk gave start the last knock-out #WWCC ever organized by @FIDE_chess. After the welcoming speech by @advorkovich, women’s world champion Ju Wenjun picked Black in her and all other odd-numbered players’ first game. #ugrachess https://t.co/ape4qKQbE7
