The Chess.com Speed Chess Championship resumes today with a battle of two closely-matched super-GMs: Ian Nepomniachtchi vs Levon Aronian. 

Nepomniachtchi is technically the higher seed, starting the Speed Chess Championship with a better blitz rating. But that was before Aronian surged nearly 70 points to number-three in the world. 

Aronian is playing the best blitz of his career, fresh off a win in St. Louis, but he will have to deal with a younger opponent eager to notch his first Speed Chess victory on Chess.com. 

Follow the action live at Chess.com/TV and Twitch.tv/chess today at 10 a.m. Pacific time (1 p.m. EDT, 5 p.m. GMT, 6 p.m. BST)
