  "The finest chess players in the world are headed for New York.

 The World Chess Championship, a semiregular one-on-one match administered by the World Chess Federation (FIDE), will be played in New York City this November, The Wall Street Journal learned Monday, marking the first time in 21 years that the world’s greatest chess player will be crowned on American soil.

The reigning world champion, Magnus Carlsen, who defended his title against India’s Viswanathan Anand in the World Chess Championship of 2014, will be on hand to play a yet-to-be-determined challenger in a 12-round match from Nov. 10 to Nov. 30 at a New York location that also has yet to be finalized."
