It’s Carlsen-Sarana, Firouzja-Erigaisi, So-Mamedov and Gukesh-Nakamura on Monday in the Airthings Masters, the 1st event on the 2023 Champions Chess Tour. Gukesh starred in the gruelling 8-hour 140-player Play-In to finish 1st by a full point and then beat Vladimir Kramnik 2:0 in a match. The greatest drama came as Rauf Mamedov took down Ian Nepomniachtchi, while Alexey Sarana came back to beat Fabiano Caruana in Armageddon.

Fantastic news for our German-speaking friends: You can now master your openings, tactics, strategy, and endgames through Chessable — in German! Following the successful rollout of Chessable in Spanish… Chessable soft-launched the German side of the website in August 2022, with less than 10 courses. But after receiving tons of helpful feedback from the community… publishing dozens of courses… and squashing bugs… you can now enjoy Chessable in the language you find most intuitive.
