Grand Chess Tour comes down to rapid and blitz

All eight classical games have now been drawn in the Grand Chess Tour finale, meaning that the fate of the $300,000 in prize money will be determined in rapid and blitz on Monday. It’s a familiar story for Fabiano Caruana this winter in London, with his opponent Levon Aronian admitting he was being “practical” to take a quick draw with White in the second game, since he outrated Fabiano in speed chess. Meanwhile Gawain Jones again proved you can win classical games in a knockout, as he beat Luke McShane to take a 6-point lead in the British Knockout Championship final.
