2019 Sinquefield Cup

The 2018 Sinquefield Cup was one of the most dramatic in the tournaments history and ended in a three way tie between GM Magnus Carlsen, GM Fabiano Caruana and GM Levon Aronian. All three will be back again this year and will no doubt be seeking an outright win. The 2019 tournament will be expanded to 11 rounds for the first time in its history and will offer an improved prize fund this year which will total $325,000.
