Confession booths to be used in Candidates Tournament

Candidates Chess 2016 MoscowAfter the successful test at the World Rapid & Blitz Championship in Berlin, the “confession booths” will be used again during the FIDE Candidates Tournament 2016 in Moscow.

Director of FIDE Moscow office Berik Balgabaev stated for R-Sport that the organizers are already experienced in holding the events on the highest level, but they are also looking at including certain innovations.

In the playing area there will be closed booths with cameras and players will come in during the games to share their opinions about the position.

The FIDE World Chess Candidates Tournament 2016 will take place in Moscow’s digital hub, the DI Telegraph space in the historic Central Telegraph building from March 11 to 29, 2016.

Eight of the world’s top grandmasters will compete for a chance to face the reigning World Champion Magnus Carlsen later this year. The €420,000 prize fund is also at stake. Tashir Group is the general partner of the Tournament.
