On Chess: Grand Chess Tour Resumes In Romania Event

After a two-month break, the Grand Chess Tour is back on the chess calendar, starting in Romania and moving on to India for the first time in tour history.

With just two events left before the London finals, itís crunch time for those players who still hope to qualify for London.

Thus far, world champion Magnus Carlsen has been dominating the tour and is leading with an impressive 54.5 points, having won two of the four events he played and tying for first in one.

He is followed by world No. 3 and the winner of the 2019 Sinquefield Cup, Ding Liren, with 37.8 points. Both players have already punched their tickets to London, while there is still a tight race for the remaining two places.
