Chess.com's 6th Blitz Chess Death Match will take place Sunday, June 17th at 11:30am Pacific (2:30pm Eastern) and will feature the "strongest matchup" so far in any Death Match! England's Gawain Jones (pictured right), currently ranked #93 in the world and #4 in England, will be the best player "on paper" to ever compete in this grueling session of blitz!
The deadline to request participation passed at midnight today (June 8th). The seats for the 6th Blitz Death Match were reserved for the top two FIDE Rated Players to request them by the cut off date. GM Jones was the highest ranked player to apply, and he will face off against our first "repeat customer" for Chess.com's Death Matches: GM Robert Hess.
