Tan Zhongyi will challenge Ju Wenjun for the World Chess Championship in 2025. The 32 year old player was not the favourite for the event but her confident play dominated with only a round 8 loss to her closest challenger Lei Tingjie as a blemish in the event. In the final round Tan played a very sharp Sicilian against Anna Muzychuk. Tan secured a big advantage but steered the game to the draw she needed. Lei needed a win and played an amazing Queen sacrifice against Humpy Koneru. Eventually her compensation disappeared and she subsided to a loss ..read more

Dommaraju Gukesh won the FIDE Candidates at the age of 17 years old. He comfortably held a draw against Hikaru Nakamura in the final round of the event.

Ding seems to have had some kind of personal crisis since taking the title and has hardly played, and when he has it's not been very good play ..read more

Tan Zhongyi could not ask for a better chance to win the Women's Candidates in Toronto going into the final round. Tan hardly played the most critical continuation against Aleksandra Goryachkina but a quiet game suited her and a draw by repetition was agreed on move 29. She now leads the Lei Tingjie by a point with no-one else able to catch her. Tan faces Anna Muzychuk with the black pieces in the final round, Muzychuk hasn't won a game yet, although she generated enough chances to have been in contention. The key result of the day was Rameshbabu Vaishali's fourth win in a row, a streak that f ..read more
