2021 Grand Chess Tour

2021 Paris Rapid & Blitz - Day 4 Recap

The first day of blitz was a rollercoaster day for many of the players, but the clear storyline was the surge of Alireza Firouzja - from finishing win-less and in last place after the rapid portion of the 2021 Paris Grand Chess Tour to being tied for fourth after today’s 6.5/9 performance. Tomorrow, it will be a two horse race to find out who will ultimately win between Wesley So and Ian Nepomniachtchi as they are so far ahead of the rest of their competitors.
