GM Cristian Chirila will be writing an article on Millionaire Chess upon the event’s conclusion.

The third edition of Millionaire Chess (October 6-10) has begun in Atlantic City. Tournament favorites include Olympic gold medalist Sam Shankland, Baskaran Adhiba (India) and World Junior Champion Jeffery Xiong. The tournament opened with red carpet photos by David Llada. There was even a best dressed competition. One of the winners was a pretty easy pick:
