The upcoming World Chess Championship will take place from 09 to 28 November 2018 in London. Magnus Carlsen (Norway) defends his title against Fabiano Caruana after the 25-year-old Italian-American won the candidate tournament in Berlin. But all chess fans get a taste of this duel just a few days after Caruana’s triumph, because the current superstars of the scene meet at the GRENKE Chess Classic.

At the press conference after his victory in the last round in Berlin against Alexander Grischuk, Caruana was already very self-confident: “We’re going to actually play at the Grenke Classic in a few days, so hopefully I’ll send a message there!”. Whether the duel will take place in Karlsruhe at the beginning or in Baden-Baden in the second half, however, is not yet clear, as the pairings will be drawn one day before the start of the tournament.

In addition to Carlsen and Caruana, three other players are the favourites for the tournament victory. It will be interesting to see if Levon Aronian (Armenia), after his disappointing performance at the candidate tournament, can muster the strength to repeat his success at the GRENKE Chess Classic last year. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (France) and former world champion Viswanathan Anand (India), on the other hand, will start the race fully rested.

The field of participants with ten world-class grandmasters is completed by Nikita Vitiugov (Russia), Arkadij Naiditsch (Azerbaijan), the world’s strongest chess player Hou Yifan (China), Georg Meier (Germany) and Matthias Blübaum (Germany).
