I think this started at 5am EDT since Carlsen won and there are still 40 minutes left to bet on the game.

  Chessgames Bookie: Congratulatons to GM Magnus Carlsen for being the overall winner of the Grand Chess Tour - Paris tournament on a tie-breaker over GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. Magnus won the 'Rapid' section of the tournament & Maxime won the 'Blitz' section. When the scores for the rapid & the blitz were added together both players had 24 out of a possible 36 points. There was a two game playoff in which Magnus won the first game & the second game was drawn.

the Grand Chess Tour - Your Next Move (Rapid) 2017 tournament begins on June 28th.. We will be covering the Rapid section of that tournament only & *not* the Blitz section. The Spring Leg ends on June 30th. which is the final day of the Rapid tournament.

Tomorrow sometime I will post a 'Pick the Winner' bet for the Rapid section of the Grand Chess Tour - Your Next Move tournament - stay tuned.
