Magnus Carlsen faces his 2016 challenger Sergey Karjakin as the New in

 

Chess Classic, the 5th event on the $1.5 million Meltwater Champions

 

Chess Online Tour, kicks off on Saturday 24 April at 18:00 GMT. Other Round 1

 

clashes to watch out for include Nakamura-Mamedyarov, Firouzja-So and

 

Duda-Praggnanandhaa, with the 15-year-old Indian prodigy making his

 

debut on the full tour after qualifying through the Polgar Challenge.

 

Once again it’s a cut-throat format of three days and 15 rounds of rapid

 

chess to reduce the 16-player field to just 8 players for the knockout.

 

English GM Gawain Jones is playing.
