It’s the Speed Chess Championship Final match between two of the best players in the world: GM Hikaru Nakamura and GM Wesley So!
Nakamura is heading into his third consecutive Speed Chess Championship final and will be looking to clinch his second title. The 32-year-old has been at the pinnacle of online tournaments this past year.
While Nakamura will face a familiar opponent on Friday, So’s ascent in online events is certainly noteworthy. The 26-year-old won the FIDE World Fischer Random Chess Championship in Norway by upsetting Carlsen. Since then, So has been a key piece of the Saint Louis Arch Bishops’ PRO Chess League title defense, compiling a performance rating of over 2800 across 24 games.
