Candidates for the candidates

Arguably the best tournament of the year kicks off tomorrow.  As usual, there are various ways to watch it live:-

Chess 24 – Jan Gustafsson, Peter Sidler and Sopiko Guramishvili provide top coverage

Chess brahs – very weird combination of Eric Hansen, Yasser Seirawan and Aman Hambleton (without beard since he made GM) can be quite amusing

FIDE – if all else fails! – it’ll probably be dull but they may have the best video!

Chessdom and Chessbomb – a couple of cheap and cheerful options

    Watching the brilliant commentary from Svidler and Gustafsson on Chess24 it’s interesting how often their analysis uses sacrificing the exchange as a routine tactic. And the tactic appears even in some of the actual games as well. There must be a message in that!

  2. Aronian-Kramnik is worth looking at. The Chessbrahs link is https://www.chess.com/news/view/fide-candidates-tournament-r3-kramnik-beats-aronian-in-brilliant-style
    It is being talked of as the game of the year – and those who remember Kramnik using the Berlin Wall to suffocate Kasparov will be astonished by how he plays it.
