The ChessBase India Candidates Contest 2020

by Sagar Shah - 16/03/2020

Whenever we have a major event, ChessBase India has a contest with an exciting giveaway! This time we have raised the stakes by quite a big margin! We have the Fritz 17 and Mega Database 2020 DVDs signed by two legends of the game - Vladimir Kramnik and Boris Gelfand. But at the same time the contest is not at all easy! Your task is to not only guess the final standings of all the players of the tournament, but also get the points that they would score right. Winning the Candidates is not going to be easy for the players, and winning the ChessBase India Candidates contest is also not at all easy! But greater the struggle, greater is a glory. Last date is 17th of March before the round begins.

The ChessBase India contest for Candidates 2020

We have a big prize for you for Candidates 2020 contest! And your task is to guess all the 8 placings of the Candidates tournament along with the score of the individual players. If you get all the 16 parameters right, then you will receive Fritz 17 and Mega Database 2020 DVDs signed by Vladimir Kramnik and Boris Gelfand. Write your answers in the comments section below:

So, if I had to make a bold prediction about the Standings at the Candidates, this is how it would look:

1. Anish Giri (10/14)

2. Fabiano Caruana (9/14)

3. Ding Liren (8/14)

4. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (7.5/14)

5. Alexander Grischuk (6.5/14)

6. Ian Nepomniachtchi (6/14)

7. Wang Hao (5/14)

8. Kirill Alekseenko (4/14)

 

What would be yours? Mention it in the comments section below. Last date for the contest is 17th of March before the 1st round begins.

 

Note: If you got both the standings and the points right you would win the mega prize of both Fritz 17 and Mega Database 2020. This would mean you have to get 16 parameters correct. While if there is no one who gets all of them right, then the next prize of one DVD is for the person who guesses all the eight places right (without taking the points points into consideration).
