Paris GCT joined the Grand Chess Tour in 2016 thanks to the generous sponsorship of Colliers International, Vivendi and DailyMotion and will once again be the first stop on the 2017 Grand Chess Tour. Paris is a city known for its rich chess history, and the players will wow audiences around the world in one of the strongest rapid and blitz events in the world. Held a stones throw from the river Seine at the beautiful Maison de la Chimie, Paris GCT features a $150,000 prize fund and sets the tone for the season.
