The 3rd China Rapid Chess Tournament is set to take place from July 29th until August 1st in Senzhen.
Eight of the strongest players from the Oriental country will battle in a round-robin event with a rapid time control.
First seed Wang Yue will travel to this tournament right after the USA-China match that is taking place in Ningbo. The Chinese star is going through a very heavy schedule, as he just finished his participation at the Grand Prix in Beijing.
Former women’s world champion Hou Yifan is among the participants. She will play against Ukrainian Anna Ushenina looking to recover his crown in September.
The very young GM Wei Yi is already a regular member at these elite tournaments.
