It’s finally here. The biggest names in chess will be facing each other in one of the year’s most prestigious events: the Finals of the 2023 Champions Chess Tour. A full season of chess tournaments has culminated in this showdown, as GMs Magnus Carlsen, Hikaru Nakamura, Fabiano Caruana, Alireza Firouzja, Wesley So, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Nodirbek Abdusattorov, and Denis Lazavik battle for chess supremacy.
Who will win? If you can guess correctly, you’ll take home some serious prizes. First place gets a Chessable course of their choice, a Chessable PRO membership, and three months of Diamond Chess.com membership! Prizes are also available for second and third-place finishers, as well as a randomly selected prize—so even if your prediction is wildly off, you still have a fair shot at winning something.
Feeling lucky? Share your prediction with us and be in to win! All you need to do is answer some quick questions about who you think will have the best performance (and some additional tiebreak questions in case someone else has the same brilliant prediction as you).
Submit your predictions before Saturday, December 9 at 12 p.m. ET / 18:00 CET to participate. Predictions will be locked after the deadline, so make sure you don’t miss out!
