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.

🍿 Chess.com Mutes Vladimir Kramnik

Following a dispute in which Kramnik implied that certain grandmasters were cheating online, Chess.com 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.
