February 9, 2021 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Colin Lyne will show us some of the games from the 2020–21 Candidates Tournament. The tournament is an eight-player chess double round-robin tournament to decide the challenger for the World Chess Championship 2021. The winner will earn the right to challenge the defending world champion, Magnus Carlsen of Norway.
The first half of the tournament was played in Yekaterinburg, Russia, from 17 March to 25 March 2020. It was suspended at the halfway point due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with Ian Nepomniachtchi and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave sharing the lead. The tournament was initially scheduled to resume in November 2020, but later it was postponed to the spring of 2021.
