A double round-robin tournament featuring six of the world’s top players. Normally it would be later in the year but it was moved so as not to conflict with the World Championship in New York in November.
The field will be Magnus Carlsen, the World Champion; Hikaru Nakamura and Wesley So of the United States; Anish Giri of the Netherlands; Sergey Karjakin of Russia; and Wei Yi of China. All eyes will be on the matchups between Carlsen and Karjakin as it will be the last time they meet before their World Championship match in November in New York City.
