Sinquefield Cup - Round 3 Pairings and Predictions
Round 3 begins in minutes. What are your predictions?
Especially interesting match-ups today are:
Nakamura vs. Caruana
The top 2 U.S. players must duke it out. After tough losses in round 2, both players will be eager to set their tournaments on the right track.
Anand vs. Topalov
Topalov is 2-0 while Anand is at the bottom of the scoreboard with 0 points. However, Anand is not to be underestimated. With White against the tournament leader, he'll be looking for his opportunity to get back into contention.
Additionally, Topalov recently claimed Anand's rank as #2 in the world on live ratings, which will only add to Anand's motivation to fight.
