    Chess Underground #12: The Candidates

    The Chess Underground is literally underground, in every sense of the word, live (on tape) from the quarantined, sheltered-in-place state of Illinois, where we check in from afar on the only show in town… in the world… the 2020 FIDE Candidates Tournament in Yekaterinburg, Russia.









    We look back on the February predictions and measure the field at the (almost) halfway point. Featuring special guest Daniel Garrett, chess fan and author of the Dumb Knight Youtube channel.

    Join us this month for a brief intermezzo of sorts –  a first look at the 2020 Candidates Tournament, to be held in Yekaterinburg, Russia. Host Pete Karagianis takes an in depth look at the matchups that may ultimately determine the next World Champion.

    A special thank you to all our season one guests! Stay tuned for updates on season two release.
