HOME OF U.S. CHAMPIONSHIP CHESS & THE COUNTRY’S TOP PLAYERS
World No. 1 Magnus Carlsen brought home a $70,000 souvenir after his first visit to the United States: The country’s finest prize in chess, the Sinquefield Cup.
There’s just one round left in the strongest tournament ever held on American soil—one game to play for the inaugural Sinquefield Cup.
World No. 1 Magnus Carlsen toppled an uninspired Gata Kamsky to move into clear first with 3/4, as Hikaru Nakamura lost his leader-status after stumbling out of the gate against Levon Aronian.
Nakamura stands as the front-runner with 2.5/3 points, while Carlsen trails just a half-point behind. Armenia’s Levon Aronian sits in third place.
