Some of the most promising young chess players of today (all born in this century): the top scorer on board one in the team chess Olympics last year, GM Dommaruju Gukesh, India, last year’s runner-up in the Tepe Sigeman Chess Tournament, GM Arjun Erigaisi, India, the runner-up in the 2022 World Rapid Chess Championship, GM Vincent Keymer, Germany, and the world’s youngest grandmaster, 14-year-old Abhimanyu Mishra, USA will also participate.

The tournament is eligible for the FIDE Circuit (Qualification Path of the FIDE Candidates Tournament 2024). In the situation that two or more players have the same score, qualification points will be shared equally, with an exception for a tied first place, in which case tiebreak games will determine the first place. Please note, tiebreak games will determine only the first place. If more than two players participate in the tiebreak games, all other players will share second place.
