Meltwater Champions Chess Tour Finals: Live

In the finals of the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour, ten players will play a rapid round robin tournament and fight for the first prize of 100,000 USD. Each round consists of a match of four rapid games. If this mini-match ends in a 2-2 tie, a 2-game blitz tie-break will follow. If this match also ends in a 1-1 tie, an Armageddon game will decide the match. The huge favourite to win is Magnus Carlsen, who thanks to the scoring system of the Champions Chess Tour and his successes in the previous tournaments starts the finals in first place, and is already 4 points ahead of Wesley So who is second.
