FIDE Candidates Tournament

GMs Wesley So and Alizera Firouzja are in a tight race to qualify for the 2024 FIDE Candidates Tournament by rating.

Thus far, GMs Nepomniachtchi, Praggnanandhaa, Caruana, Abasov, Gujrathi, and Nakamura have qualified. World #1 Magnus Carlsen has declined to participate.

🍿 Mutes Vladimir Kramnik

Following a dispute in which Kramnik implied that certain grandmasters were cheating online, has closed Kramnik’s blog and muted his account.

It’s concerning to see the world’s largest chess platform (and arguably a chess monopoly) silencing a former world champion – the very one who defeated the legendary Garry Kasparov.
