Third stage of the Grand Prix kicks off without Andreikin

Citing personal reasons, Dmitry Andreikin withdrew from the third leg of the FIDE Grand Prix. Andrey Esipenko (pictured), who also played in the first leg as a replacement, stepped in. The tournament is set to take place in Berlin, with two spots in the Candidates still up for grabs, albeit it is highly unlikely for Richard Rapport not to get one of those after his victory in Belgrade. | Photos: World Chess
