  morfishine: Caruana could use a nice win, but that'll be hard since LaGrave is coming off a strong win over Nepo. This one looks like a draw

  MissScarlett: I predict a draw on time.
Mar-26-20  Inocencio: Its now or never. Faby must assert now his strength against MVL before its too late. If D4, MVL will play Gruenfeld. If E4, MVL will play Najdorf.

  Bobby Spassky: Today, the government of the Russian Federation announced that starting March 27, 2020, Russia interrupts air traffic with other countries without indicating any time frames.

FIDE can not continue the tournament without guarantees for the players' and officials' safe and timely return home. In this situation and on the basis of clause 1.5. Rules of Candidates Tournament, the FIDE President decided to stop the tournament. It will be continued later, with the exact dates to be announced as soon, as the global situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic will allow.

As it was stipulated by the special rules agreed with the players before the start of the event, the results of the 7 rounds played remain valid, and the tournament will be resumed in the same composition starting with the games of the 8th round. FIDE is grateful to the players, officials, volunteers and the entire team of organizers, including the Chess Federation of Russia and the main partner of the tournament - SIMA-Land.

Sincerely,
Arkady Dvorkovich,
FIDE President

  jith1207: Twitter handles said everyone including players, journalists and other staff from abroad are returning at the earliest.

That's going to be busy few hours where so many people try to get out of there, if they can't stay for as long as the interruption is going to be.

Good luck to all.

Mar-26-20  ZonszeinP: I wish Vachier-Lagrave could become the champion's challenger

I just wanted to say that

And to wish

All the best to everybody
