Showdown in Saint Louis Set for Nov 10-15


The 2016 Champions Showdown shall be an exhibition event featuring four players (Viswanathan Anand, Fabiano Caruana, Hikaru Nakamura and Veselin Topalov). Over five days, the Players shall complete two Classical Round Robins (G/60 +5” delay), two Rapid Round Robins (G/15 +5” delay) and four Blitz Round Robins (G/3 +2” delay).


  1. Just curious, why are they having it at the same time as the Magnus vs Karjakin championship match?? Did the organizers not think they would be stealing the thunder from the bigger world championship match?
