Sinquefield Cup - Round 3 Pairings and Predictions

Aug 25, 2015, 10:35 AM |

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.
